Sorry Andrew, I should have mentioned that this patch was based on
Mike's "hugetlb fix potential over/underflow" patch.

Given said that, I would keep the two patches separated, as that one
is a fix, and this one is a cleanup.

I am not sure of the consequences in older branches, but if it is not
too much of a hassle, it might be worth? Mike might know better here.
