Well, I am a little bit lost with these ppc features.
Currently on ia64, interrupts are caught by Xen and then injected into dom0.
I don't see any fairness or latency problems [except when we are dealing with
event channel].

On ia64, there are two PIC: one on each processor (LSAPIC ~= LAPIC) and one 
(or several) for IO (IOSAPIC ~= IO_APIC).
