memory hotplug: fix next block calculation in is_removable

commit 0dcc48c upstream.

next_active_pageblock() is for finding next _used_ freeblock.  It skips
several blocks when it finds there are a chunk of free pages lager than
pageblock.  But it has 2 bugs.

  1. We have no lock. page_order(page) - pageblock_order can be minus.
  2. pageblocks_stride += is wrong. it should skip page_order(p) of pages.
