Why not use min() / max() macros from include/linux/kernel.h?

nit: "Skip everything" => "Skip all keepouts"

...might not hurt to remind here that keepouts are sorted?

nit: remove blank line?

It seems like it might be worth adding something to validate that the
ranges are sorted and return an error if they're not.

Maybe worth validating (and documenting) that the keepouts won't cause
us to violate "stride" and/or "word_size" ?


Everything above is just nits and other than them this looks like a
nice change. BTW: this is the kind of thing that screams for unit
testing, though that might be a bit too much of a yak to shave here?
