Sorry, I don't get your point.

What's the meaning of "roll up" here?

Would you mind giving me an example? I see pmd_addr_end() is not used in many
places in core kernel. By glancing those usages, all the places use it like
pmd_addr_end(addr, end). Seems no specially handing on the end address.

Or you mean the case when pmd_addr_end() is defined to return "end" directly?
