Yes. The "processor" here is indicating which P9 processor in the
system, not whatever processor(s) this kernel is running on. We use this
device tree on the service processor, which can be talking to multiple
P9 chips (over SBEFIFO). This could probably be clarified by saying "P9
chip" or something.

No phandle available; see above, the processor being referenced is a
separate entity in the system.

Thanks for the quick feedback.
