Currently, the problem that I encounter is that a container has many
devices and the application will map the same memory many times.
The kernel driver returns EEXIST as long as there are overlapping memory
areas. Therefore, the application needs to ensure that the memory blocks
of the DMA do not overlap. Otherwise, it will not work normally.

Could you offer me some ideas or advise to fix it?

Thanks,
