It's the same thing.
I'd actually prefer page = pfn_to_page(page_to_pfn(page) + 1); because
it makes the code look like the hack it is. The preferred form for all
iterators like this should be to iterate over the pfn instead of a
pointer into the page arrays, because that will always work correctly no
matter how many weird and wonderful memory schemes we come up with.
