Ah, sorry, I misunderstood qm_eq_ctx_cfg() and qm_qp_ctx_cfg(), because their names are quite similar.
Now, I re-organize this report as follows:

In qm_eq_ctx_cfg(), "eqc" and "aeqc" are mapped to streaming DMA:
eqc_dma = dma_map_single(..., eqc, ...);
......
aeqc_dma = dma_map_single(..., aeqc, ...);

Then "sqc" and "aeqc" are accessed at some places in qm_eq_ctx_cfg(), such as:
eqc->base_l = cpu_to_le32(lower_32_bits(qm->eqe_dma));
eqc->base_h = cpu_to_le32(upper_32_bits(qm->eqe_dma));
......
aeqc->base_l = cpu_to_le32(lower_32_bits(qm->aeqe_dma));
aeqc->base_h = cpu_to_le32(upper_32_bits(qm->aeqe_dma));

These accesses may cause data inconsistency between CPU cache and hardware.

Besides, in qm_qp_ctx_cfg(), "sqc" and "cqc" are mapped to streaming DMA:
sqc_dma = dma_map_single(..., sqc, ...);
......
cqc_dma = dma_map_single(..., cqc, ...);


Then "sqc" and "cqc" are at some places in qm_qp_ctx_cfg(), such as:
sqc->cq_num = cpu_to_le16(qp_id);
sqc->w13 = cpu_to_le16(QM_MK_SQC_W13(0, 1, qp->alg_type));
......
cqc->dw3 = cpu_to_le32(QM_MK_CQC_DW3_V2(4));
cqc->w8 = 0;

These accesses may cause data inconsistency between CPU cache and hardware.

I think such problems (if they are real) can be fixed by finishing data assignment before DMA mapping.


Best wishes,
