Good catch. I ll change the check to,
          if ((pfn < has->start_pfn) ||
                   (pfn + (1UL << order) >= has->end_pfn))
               continue;

Thanks for that. How about this?

static int online_pages_blocks(unsigned long start, unsigned long 
nr_pages)
{
         unsigned long end = start + nr_pages;
         int order;

         while (nr_pages) {
                 if (nr_pages >= (1UL << (MAX_ORDER - 1)))
                         order = MAX_ORDER - 1;
                 else
                         order = __fls(nr_pages);

                 (*online_page_callback)(pfn_to_page(start), order);
                 nr_pages -= (1UL << order);
                 start += (1UL << order);
         }
         return end - start;
}

Arun
