It is worth noting that this is slightly more complex to read than it needs to be.
You are changing both endpoints of a loop at once. That's hard to read for a human.
And you're only doing it in order to gain the small benefit of being able to
use nr directly at the end of the routine.

If instead you keep npages constant like it naturally wants to be, you could
just do a "(*ntails)++" in the loop, to take care of *ntails.

However, given that the patch is correct and works as-is, the above is really just
an optional idea, so please feel free to add:
