Hello, I have a powermac running 12.04, and I read somewhere that there are patches for the kernal that add TRIM support. Can I get this for my machine, or is this an Intel only thing?

I am using an SSD with Solaris Express. Solaris Express does not have TRIM. I doubt newer versions of Solaris has TRIM, but OpenZFS might have TRIM?
My question is this. I am going to reinstall Solaris 11.1 on the SSD (I have bought a new PC). My SSD has never been TRIMed, so I should TRIM the SSD I guess. But, if I reformat the SSD with ZFS, do I still need to TRIM the SSD?
1. Hardware. Samsung SSD UM410 Series. ATA. BIOS: AHCI not enabled (doesn't exist) because mb is ATA and AHCI is an SATA interface. This is a 5 year old 8 GB ssd, one of the earliest ones, never been TRIM'd. When I do:
sudo hdparm -I /dev/sda
I see no mention made of TRIM under capabilities/features. I do see Mandatory FLUSH_CACHE.
If someone gets an SSD that has TRIM support in the firmware and loads Fedora 12, does the
I/O layer have support for TRIM yet? Or is it something where you need to add a flag to the kernel at boot time?
I have just bought a new computer which came with an SSD. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit and I would like to know about TRIM. Having done an internet search, it appears that a) my SSD supports trim and b) that Ubuntu 14.04 supports TRIM by default. Do I need to do anything, or is that it?
I never did get a very good handle on the whole TRIM/Garbage Collection thing.
I'm building a system for XP, and while I'd be perfectly happy with a mech HDD performance-wise, it's got to the point where I'd rather deal with SSD issues (no TRIM, alignment) than today's HDD issues (no quality control and 'by design' bugs like head parking).
So with XP not supporting TRIM, what are the options
