You may see this error if you are trying to configure your device using quartus_cvp on a Linux machine and the driver has failed to load.
A possible cause for the driver failing to load is that the kernel does not have a large enough virtual memory allocation. You can confirm that there is a problem with virtual memory allocation by checking the kernel ring buffer messages using dmesg. If there is a problem with virtual memory allocation you will see the following message:
vmap allocation for size 268439552 failed: use vmalloc= to increase size.
