x86/mm: Do not flush last cacheline twice in clflush_cache_range()

The current algorithm used in clflush_cache_range() can cause
the last cache line of the buffer to be flushed twice. Fix that
algorithm so that each cache line will only be flushed once.

[ Changed it to 'void *' to simplify the type conversions. ]
