Yes, I meant to remove that *idx = U64_MAX after the loop, it is
confusing to have a loop:

while (*idx != U64_MAX) {
	...
}

*idx = U64_MAX;


So, it is better to set idx to U643_MAX inside the loop before the
break.

if (zone_end_pfn(zone) <= spfn) won't break

Equal sign in <= here takes care of the case I was thinking. Yes, logic looks good.

Thank you
