I would expect node_start_pfn to always be the equivalent of
NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn and that does appear to be case even
though it is not universally defined;

alpha/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
m32r/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
parisc/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
powerpc/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
sh/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
sparc/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
tile/include/asm/mmzone.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
x86/include/asm/mmzone_32.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)
x86/include/asm/mmzone_64.h:#define node_start_pfn(nid) (NODE_DATA(nid)->node_start_pfn)

Similarly I would always expect node_end_pfn to be related to
node_spanned_pages which is true of x86, tile, sh and parisc. sparc
and powerpc uses node_end_pfn which is a good trick because that
is not a member of pglist_data (suspect they do not build on
!CONFIG_NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES?).

m32r does differ from everyone else in that it's
__pgdat->node_start_pfn + __pgdat->node_spanned_pages - 1 and this was
the case when it was introduced in 2004. It's not explained why it is
like this but I suspect it's a mistake and I think your cleanup is
appropriate.

Does anyone remember *why* this did not happen in the first place? I
can't think of a good reason so I've cc'd Dave Hansen as he might
remember.

Would it also be worth cleaning up users of node_spanned_pages to
use node_end_pfn in mm/ where appropriate rather than having a mix
of spanned_pages and node_end_pfn?

For the most part, it looks good! I haven't compile-tested this but
I did spot one one problem unfortunately;

A caller that does node_end_pfn(nid++) will get a nasty surprise
due to side-effects. I know architectures currently get this wrong
including x86_64 but we might as well fix it up now. The definition
in arch/x86/include/asm/mmzone_32.h is immune to side-effects and
might be a better choice despite the use of a temporary variable.
