forcing solaris to look for chances

It is tempting here to manually modify /etc/devices/path_to_inst directly, replacing 8 and 9 with 10 and 11. But modification of path_to_inst file does not survive an upgrade. Any modification done to that file will be dropped after an upgrade. So bootstrapping path_to_inst file is the right persistent way. => Bootstrapping this file allows the box to force a rebuild of path_to_inst.
