Currently we're passing -1 to shmem_truncate_range which can then call
truncate_inode_pages_range() which is actually really confusing since the
argument is signed so we do not get "huge" number as one would expect,
but rather just -1. To make things clearer and easier for
truncate_inode_pages_range() just pass LLONG_MAX since it is actually what
was intended anyway.

It also makes thing easier for allowing truncate_inode_pages_range() to
handle non page aligned regions. Moreover letting the lend argument to
be negative might actually hide some bugs.
