The problem is not the unmapping.
If there are two requests for the same tfm, then given the following sequence
1. tfm->ahash_init(req1)
tfm_ctx->dma_hw_context points to req1_ctx->hw_context
2. tfm->ahash_init(req2)
tfm_ctx->dma_hw_context [unmapped, then] points to req2_ctx->hw_context
i.e. req1 will use the hw_context of req2.

There is no ahash_exit() callback mirroring ahash_init().

The clean-up of request ctx should be done in the last states of the hash flows
described here:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/crypto/devel-algos.html#cipher-definition-with-struct-shash-alg-and-ahash-alg
for e.g. in the final() callback.

Hope this helps,
Horia
