Thanks for your patch. The bug is caused by my patch set for creating a
whole part of 1st bitmap before entering cyclic process.

I think v1 is better than v2. The update_cyclic_range() call relevant
to this regression is somewhat special compared to other calls; it is
the almost only call that doesn't need to perform filtering processing.
To fix this bug, please make the patch so as not to affect the other calls,
in order to keep change as small as possible.
