I might be misunterstanding you, but I am not sure I get you.

scan_movable_pages() can either skip or not a hugetlb page.
In case it does, pfn will be incremented to skip the whole hugetlb
If that happens, pfn will hold the next non-hugetlb page.

If it happens that the end of the hugetlb page is also the end
of the memory range, scan_movable_pages() will return 0 and we will
eventually break the loop in __offline_pages().

If this is not what you meant, could you please elaborate a bit more your concern?
