this is indeed wrong. Pfns over would be really broken 15TB. Not that
unrealistic these days

Dohh, those nasty macros. This is hidden quite well. It seems other
callers are using unsigned long properly. But I would rather make sure
we won't repeat that error again. Can we instead make section_nr_to_pfn
resp. pfn_to_section_nr static inline and enfore proper types?

I would also split this into two patches.

Thanks!
