Nope, not sure how you can make this leap. We've been specifically told
that peer-to-peer PCIe DMA is not supported on P9. We've also been told
there is a very limited (ie. store only), low performance mode designed
for poking mailboxes but it is disabled by default and must be enable
with some kind of special firmware calls.
