What other target functions?  pcu(9) uses xc_unicast(XC_HIGHPRI, func ...)

If I got it right we have:

xc_broadcast(XC_HIGHPRI, func, arg1, arg2)
-> xc_highpri(func, arg1, arg2)
   stores the func+arg1+arg2 to xc_high_pri
   -> xc_send_ipi()
      -> sparc64_generic_call()
         -> sparc64_multicast_ipi()
            -> sparc64_send_ipi
               notifies other cpus to call xc_ipi_handler()

and then on other cpus xc_ipi_handler() runs xc_highpri_intr()
that calls the function stored in xc_high_pri.

What other target functions do you have in mind?
