I deduce that those instructions can't have been tested
very thoroughly, because:

void cpu_physical_memory_unmap(void *buffer, hwaddr len,
                               int is_write, hwaddr access_len);

    cpu_physical_memory_unmap(dest_p, 1, len, len);
    cpu_physical_memory_unmap(dest_p, 1, len, len);
    cpu_physical_memory_unmap(src_p, 0, len, len);

Note the argument ordering error!
