release_pages() is an optimized batch put_page() so it's ok.
but! release starting from page next to one cause failure in 
ib_umem_odp_map_dma_single_page() is correct because failure flow of 
this functions already called put_page().
So release_pages(&local_page_list[j+1], npages - j-1) would be correct.
