This doesn't look right to me.
The comment above says "returns the entry from the hash which fits
best", but this will always return NULL, if there are are multiple
entrys, but no perfect match.

On a wrong unmap that would result in "DMA-API: device driver tries to
free DMA memory it has not allocated" instead of a report what kind of
mismatches happend.

Or did you mean to return NULL if there are more then one matches at
the last_lvl? Then a matches=1; is missing from the "found an entry"
block.

Should there be a warning if more then one possible match were found?

* driver maps address 'a' with size 1
* driver maps same address 'a' with size 2
* driver wrongly unmaps the second allocation with size 1
-> no warning, because the first allocation is returned
* driver wants to correctly unmap the first allocation
-> wrong warning about this unmap because size mismatch

Also what about sg_call_ents and sg_mapped_ents?
Could it be possible to get the same address/size with different sg-counts.

As in my case most of the warnings where about a wrong unmap count and
only a few about the memory size, that seems possible.

For reference, here part of the warnings from my system:
