I incorrectly kept that check in from the current/existing code.
You are correct in saying that it is not needed at all.  I believe
this check (and the corresponding start/end adjustment) was needed
in the case of coalesced LMBs.  In these cases, a single 'LMB'
could span multiple nodes.  This issue goes away when just looking
at raw memory blocks.
