I can't see any link between nr and LRU_BITMAP_SIZE, caller may pass a
larger list of pages which is not relative to the LRU list.

To move forward seeing the benefit of this series with the SPF one, I
declared the bit map based on nr. This is still not a valid option but this
at least allows to process all the passed pages.
