I mean follow as
908 /*
909 * Attempt to take all pages in the order aligned region
910 * surrounding the tag page. Only take those pages of
911 * the same active state as that tag page. We may safely
912 * round the target page pfn down to the requested order
913 * as the mem_map is guarenteed valid out to MAX_ORDER,
914 * where that page is in a different zone we will detect
915 * it from its zone id and abort this block scan.
916 */
917 zone_id = page_zone_id(page);

If it is so, the break also is meaningless.
