Agreed, that's the problem, we'd be switching compile-time static
information about the array with dynamic.

We can add some macros that are also page size dependent and evaluate to
a constant that can be in turn used to optimize the loop to a single
call of the loop body.

Looking at csum_tree_block we should really use the num_extent_pages
helper that does the same thing but handles when nodesize >> PAGE_SIZE
is zero (and returns 1).
