Hi,

1: No, because "stop = offset + length" and we're comparing it with
   "pos + bh->b_size". If it would be ">=" then we would always miss
   the last buffer. Let's assume pos = 0, b_size = 1024 and we're
   invalidating offset = 0 and length = 1024 .. the rest you can try
   for yourself :)

2: No, because if this condition is true, we can never have full page
   invalidate. With full page invalidation we'll walk all the
   buffers within the page hence we would jump our of the cycle when
   "bh == head".

Thanks!
