The reason for two HopID allocators (struct idas) is to make it possible
to track HopIDs to each direction. The same port can be output for one
path and input for another. I'm not sure how that can be done without
having two struct idas per port.

You are right, in case of out port HopID connecter to remote in port,
they should use the same HopID.

No you are right. I think the above code should look like:

ret = tb_port_alloc_in_hopid(in_port, in_hopid, in_hopid);

instead of

ret = tb_port_alloc_in_hopid(in_port, in_hopid, -1);

to make sure out port and in port of a remote use the same HopID. Will
fix.
