Question Can Linux Application Modify I/O and Inter-CPU connections?

There is a new Fabric7 server with reconfigurable I/O connections and reconfigurable connections between CPUs. The server is based on Linux RedHat and Linux SuSE.
Is it possible for Linux applications on this new server to modify I/O connection and connection between CPUs?

www . fabric7 . com

From EWeek:

"The whole focus is on developing a product line that allows dynamic IT," said Sharad Mehrota, president and CEO of Fabric7.
Aimed at the midrange to high-end markets served by traditional Unix vendors such as Sun Microsystems Inc., IBM and Hewlett-Packard Co., the new systems are highly scalable servers based on Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s single- or dual-core Opteron processors and rely on hardware partitioning and the virtualization of the I/O. They also rely on AMD's Direct Connect architecture to reduce latency.
Fabric7's Q-Par technology enables users to carve up the chassis into separate servers, and provision them as needed. Those partitions work with I/O devices and storage components, and all can be managed with Fabric7's Q-Visor management software.
The Q80 allows for up to four partitions per chassis; the Q160 up to seven. Both can run as up to 16-way servers, and both run Linux from Red Hat Inc. and Novell Inc.'s SUSE unit or Microsoft Corp. Windows environments.
The Q160 offers up to 128GB of memory per server and up to 30G-bps I/O capacity. It's available immediately, starting at $144,000. The Q80, with up to 64GB of memory, will be available in January, starting at $42,000.
