This feature provides improved performance for compute (HSA) where mapping / unmapping is carried out (by Kernel) independent of command submissions (done directly by user space). This version doesn't support shadow copy of VM page tables for CPU based update.
I think your improved performance is from less waiting for cs, 
generally, SDMA engine updating page table is faster than CPU, otherwise 
we don't need sdma for updating PT.
So whether your this improvement proves we have some redundant sync when 
mapping / unmapping, if yes, we should fix that, then not sure if CPU 
method is need or not.
