Writes are more likely to be supported then reads.
ISTR that some intel cpus support some p2p writes, but there could easily
be errata against them.
Ludwig mentioned a PCIe switch. The few switches I'm aware of support
P2P transfers. So if everything is setup correctly, the TLPs shouldn't
even touch the CPU.
But, yes, generally it's a good idea to start with writes and see if
they work first.
