Your DSA area is pinned and the mapping is pinned, but there is one
more thing that goes away automatically unless you nail it to the
table: the backend-local dsa_area object which dsa_create() and
dsa_attach() return.  That's allocated in the "current memory
context", so if you do it from your procedure simple_udf_func without
making special arrangements it gets automatically freed at end of
transaction.  If you're going to cache it for the whole life of the
backend, you'd better make sure it's allocated in memory context that
lives long enough.  Where you have dsa_create() and dsa_attach()
calls, try coding like this:

  MemoryContext old_context;

  old_context = MemoryContextSwitchTo(TopMemoryContext);
  area = dsa_create(...);

  old_context = MemoryContextSwitchTo(TopMemoryContext);
  area = dsa_attach(...);

You'll need to #include "utils/memutils.h".
