Yes, because in this case we have no way to know what config is
currently selected.

AFAICT you're no longer checking that map_id is valid (see below).

You're no longer checking that when ncmds == 0 nmaps has to be 1. So,
say the chip exposed no smpt commands and has several maps defined,
map_id will be 0 while it should have be "undefined". My version
would return an error, but yours tries to find map_id 0.

You would have failed the same way without this validity check after a
maximum of smpt_len iterations, right?
