And here to, access may not mean exactly what you expect.  Some accesses
are simple uncached accesses.  Some are cached accesses for the owning
SSI uncached accesses for the remote side (write coalesced).  Some are
DMA reads from the remote side to cachable local side.  When Jack says
access, he truly means it in a very broad sense.

Thanks,
Robin
