I really don't like quick fixes like this, exactly because of the
kind of new bug this change is introducing.

The 'trouble' label assumes that it is recovering and unwinding state
when an error occurs after the DMA buffer is successfully mapped.

It unconditionally does pci_unmap_single() if 'paddr' is non-zero
which it might be in the error case depending upon how DMA errors
are represented on a given platform.
