i found it by reading the code, this is a kernel API function and there
are no enough hint for parameter requirements, so any parameters
combination maybe be used by user, moreover, it seems appropriate for
many bad parameter combination, for example, provided  PMD_SIZE=2M and
PAGE_SIZE=4K, 0x00 is used for aligned very well address
a user maybe want to map virtual range[0x1ff800, 0x200800) to physical address
0x300800, it will cause endless loop

  this complicate express is used to avoid addr overflow, consider map
  virtual rang [0xffe00800, 0xfffff800) for 32bit machine
  actually, my previous approach is just like that you pointed mailed at 20/09
  as below, besides, i apply my previous approach for mm/vmalloc.c and 
  npig...@gmail.com have "For API functions perhaps it's reasonable" comments
  i don't tell which is better

if WARN_ON_ONCE is used, the later bad ranges for many other purposes can't
be alerted, and ioremap_page_range() can map large enough ranges so not too many
calls happens for a purpose

no, it don't work for many special case
for example, provided  PMD_SIZE=2M
mapping [0x1f8800, 0x208800) virtual range will be split to two ranges
[0x1f8800, 0x200000) and [0x200000,0x208800) and map them separately
the first range will cause dead loop
