I see this when you discussed with Yogesh:

+       for (nmaps = 0; i< smpt_len; nmaps++) {
+               if(!(smpt[i] & SMPT_DESC_TYPE_MAP)) {
+                       i += 2;
+                       continue;
+               }
+
+               if(!map_id_is_valid) {
+                       if (nmaps) {
+                               ret = NULL;
+                               break;
+                       }

If I understand correctly, you meant that if there are no detection commands,
and more than a configuration map, then return an error.

This is correct in my opinion. What I did was to generalize this idea. If smtp
defines more maps than you can select using detection commands, return error.

+                       ret = smpt+i;
+               } else if (map_id == SMPT_MAP_ID(smpt[i])) {
+                       ret = smpt+i;
+                       break;
+               }
+
                /* increment the table index to the next map */
                i += SMPT_MAP_REGION_COUNT(smpt[i]) + 1;
        }

It's rather a smtp validity check. I want to return an error if there are not
enough detection commands to identify the map id.
