I'm not sure i follow.

How did you determine that to be the case, given that, by your own
admission below, `vfio_type1_dma_mem_map` function is executed several


I`ll mention map and unmap as below in explaining through one of the example

map = function vfio_type1_dma_mem_map called with argument do_map = 1

unamp = function  type1_dma_mem_map  called with argument do_map = 0

What I notice that for some particular address received in mz->iova, after
rte_memzone_reserve_aligned is successfully returned, the map function
(vfio_type1_dma_mem_map do_map =1) was not called prior to return of
function rte_memzone_reserve_aligned.

Below is one of the sequence to understand.

Let’s say there is an address ‘*iova_fail’*, for which exception is raised
by SMMU while dpdk-test runs with Crypto PMD.

When dpdk-test is run with Crypto test suit I see that for an address*
iova_fail* several times vfio_type1_dma_mem_map is called with (do_map =
0/1 with length = 2MB). I believe this happens due to call for memory
allocation/free for buffers/queues. The test runs fine as long as the map
is called before rte_memzone_reserve_aligned returns and similarly for
unmap when same memory is freed. But after several times with map/unmap for*
iova_fail*, map is NOT called before rte_memzone_reserve_aligned is retuned
though iova_fail was previously unmapped. Since it’s not mapped, SMMU
raises an exception.

Please note issue is not frequently visible and might reproduce after
pmd_crypto_autotest is run multiple times over dpdk-test.

If you are not able to follow I`ll try to send the debug printfs for test.
