Right.

I will add the codes to do this in the next version. It should be more 
explicit than have this assumption by default.

I think it's better not have this limitation, note that set_map() now 
takes a asid argument.

So for hardware if the associated as is changed, the driver needs to 
program the hardware to switch to the new mapping.

Does this work for mlx5?

Will fix.
