This looks much better than what I had.

Should that be (isize - 1) >> huget_page_shift(h) ?

same here (isize - 1) ?

Is that correct ? We calculate nr differently in the earlier part of the function

I guess we need to closely look at the patch with respect to end-of-file
condition. I will also try to get some testing with the patch.
