Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris IBM and Sun Microsystems are in the final stages of an 18-month-long project to adapt the OpenSolaris operating system to run optimally on Big Blue's z System mainframes. David Boyes, president and chief technology officer of Sine Nomine Associates, a consultancy that handled most of the integration and migration duties, told eWEEK at the Gartner Data Center Conference 2007 that the new IBM-tuned version of OpenSolaris will be ready soon. He declined to be more specific.

The Z6 mainframe CPU shares some come features (cache etc.) but is not a version of the Power6.

Here's the link to the IBM pdf on the matter:
