strictly speaking this changelog doesn't explain _why_ the original code
is wrong/suboptimal and why you are changing that. I would use the
folloging

"
for_each_memblock_type macro function relies on idx variable defined in
the caller context. Silent macro arguments are almost always wrong thing
to do. They make code harder to read and easier to get wrong. Let's
use an explicit iterator parameter for for_each_memblock_type and make
the code more obious. This patch is a mere cleanup and it shouldn't
introduce any functional change.
