The mfn parameter is the first mfn of a consecutive nr MFNs passed to
map_pages_to_xen. Putting INVALID_MFN isn't helping -- the value written
to page table(s) will wrap around to 0.
And I think starting from 0 to avoid overflow is probably a better
behaviour. If you really want to make sure all entries are filled with
INVALID_MFN you should call map_pages_to_xen for nr times with each
