Maybe, there is a complete solutin (at least as complete als Linux 
Libertine lets it be). In order to determine that, you should give a 
detailed specification of what you _want_. Until now, you mostly said, 
what you _did_ and what problems occured that way.

If all you want is the support of unicode math alphabets including bold 
greek letters (u1d6a8 to u1d6e1), then the unicode-math package with a 
math font supporting these glyphs (like Asana Math) seems to be a near 
complete solution.

If you want additional siunitx support (for bold greek?) within xelatex, 
it get's a little bit complicated, as siunitx's detection algorithm seem 
to not really work together with unicode-math. Using the keys mode and 
math-rm / text-rm (and associeates) together with the \fontspec or 
\mathbf etc. can most probably get you, what you want, albeit being ugly 

When the exact problems are cleared, one might file a bug report / 
feature request to the siunitx maintainer Joseph Wright. (Maybe he is 
even reading this list.)

Math alphabets in Linux Libertine O might come with Open Math support 
for Linux Libertine O.

Attached you find a small analysis of trying to get bold numbers in 
Linux Libertine by siunitx.
