Okay. I thought that I've found at least one usage of
dsm_find_mapping() in the code. :-)

But, I've some more doubts.
1. When should we use dsm_find_mapping()? (The first few lines of
dsm_attach is same as dsm_find_mapping().)
2. As a user of dsa, how should we check whether my dsa handle is
already attached? I guess this is required because, if a user tries to
re-attach a dsa handle,  it's punishing the user by throwing an error
and the user wants to avoid such errors.
