I left it at 1 page because that's the current limitation of this
interface and there are no callers which are zeroing across page
boundaries.

I prefer to keep it this way and modify it when we are extending this
interface to allow zeroing across page boundaries. Because even if I add
that logic, I can't test it.

But if you still prefer to change it, I am open to make that change.

Thanks
Vivek
