Leap second for year 2015

I hear the Leap second for 2015 will occur on June 30 at 23:59:60 according to the wild rumours from internet the expected impact ranges from crashing to hanging servers.

Can anybody share their preparations what they have done for solaris servers? are there any patches to install or workaround?

For those interested in HP servers can take a look at this.

Here everyone trusts that it will work.
It worked in 2012. Only Linux had a problem.
