I think you got it exactly right, this was the intention. The reason is favouring lookup speed instead of checks.
For all tables, we do run-time checks for create/entry add/entry delete and we never do run-time checks for lookup.
If there is any inconvenience about this, let you and I talk.

We are planning to have a documentation enhancement for 2.0 release, this is one thing to clearly mention about array tables.

Thanks!

Regards,
Cristian

Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] lib/librte_table: Fix table array lookup

The existing lookup function was returning an unmodified
pkts_mask bitmask into lookup_hit_mask.  This effectively
assumes that all packets would index correctly into one
of the array table entries.

Also, there was no check that the metadata provided index
value was within range of the table max entries.  By using
using table index bitmask on the metadata provided index
the resulting entry position may falsely indicate a hit
for index values provided that happen to be greter than
the number of table entries.

Like other table type lookup functions it would seem that
the possibility exists that some of the packets provided
to the function would not result in a hit.  It is assumed
that the metadata provided should be a direct index into
the array table.  So, code was added to build and return
a bitmask for only those packets that correctly index
directly into the table array.

If the original intent for this table type was to accept
any 32-bit value, then by applying the table index bitmask
as a modulo index for distribution across table entries,
then this patch would be invalid and should be rejected.
