From my point of view you degrade readability by doing that.

section_nr_to_pfn(mem->start_section_nr + section_nr);

Three times the word 'section_nr' in one line, is that worth it ? Gives
me headache.

Codying style says the following, which makes full sense in my opinion:

LOCAL variable names should be short, and to the point. If you have
some random integer loop counter, it should probably be called ``i``.
Calling it ``loop_counter`` is non-productive, if there is no chance of it
being mis-understood.

What about just naming it 'nr' if we want to use something else than 'i' ?
