OK.

Sorry I didn't get it. Yes, in current design, you can pin all mem
handles in one time but I haven't found anything related with "locking
only once per submit".

My idea is:
- remove "job->addr_phys"
- assign "job->reloc_addr_phys" & "job->gather_addr_phys" separately
- In "pin_job_mem", just call "host1x_memmgr_pin_array_ids" twice to
fill the "reloc_addr_phy" & "gather_addr_phys".

Anything I misunderstood?

Yes. Sorry I must misread the code before.

"host1x_cma_pin_array_ids" doesn't return negative value right now, so
maybe you need to take a look at it.
