So what you are saying is that we should try to move the "nature"
of the 'server' parameter of the xics framework in the icp_get() 
handler of the XICSFabric. Correct ? Because at the end, it all 
boils down to use a 'server' to look for an ICPState.

Each machine would do its conversion : 

        xics_get_cpu_index_by_dt_id() for spapr
        xics_get_cpu_index_by_pir() for powernv
