I think the code change below is safe enough. I have not found it easy
to understand your description above but I think that you are saying
that if the section we are initialising is bigger than a PMD size, but
falls offset from the PMD start we will initialise the end of the first
PMD and the end of the second PMD and so on. The "start" of the second
PMD is missed.

Ahh yes, that I think is what your diagram shows. Yes this is pretty
clearly wrong for any sort of offset initialisation, and would be worse
lower down in the hierachy. This seems like a clean way to fix the bug.
Thanks for finding this.
