Page tables is moved on the base of PMD. This requires both source and destination range should meet the requirement.
Current code works well since move_huge_pmd() and move_normal_pmd() would check old_addr and new_addr again. And then return to move_ptes() if the either of them is not aligned. In stead of calculating the extent separately, it is better to calculate in one place, so we know it is not necessary to try move pmd. By doing so, the logic seems a little clear.
