On a second thought, I think it should not really matter.

AFAICS, we can have these scenarios:

1) the head page is the first page in the pabeblock
2) first page in the pageblock is not a head but part of a hugepage
3) the head is somewhere within the pageblock

For cases 1) and 3), iter will just get the right value and we will
break the loop afterwards.

In case 2), iter will be set to a value to skip over the remaining pages.

I am assuming that hugepages are allocated and packed together.

Note that I am not against the change, but I just wanted to see if there is
something I am missing.
