all are the same for unsigned values which are a multiply of 8

if values could be something else then the code can write out of
array and is potentially exploitable

for example
if one changes MAX_ORDER to 255 from 256 you have exploitable code
if someone finds and reverseensgeer an extra bit somewhere that
allows files with order % 8 != 0 it would be exploitable too

I suggest to make the code a bit more defensive and not write out
of array in such cases, even though they are not possible with the
current code
