You rework this again in the later patch doing the final switch over
after which things end up right but also already at this point:

... this line should just go.

Previously "res" ended up as the last dependent set through the while
loop but now it's the independendent set which in this previous setup of
things shouldn't even have a ->next. Just deleting this line makes this
patch fine and
