From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

list_for_each_entry uses its first argument to move from one element to the
next, so modifying it can break the iteration.  The variable re1 is already
used within the loop as a temporary variable, and is not live here.

The semantic match that finds this problem is as follows:
(http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@r@
iterator name list_for_each_entry;
expression x,E;
position p1,p2;
@@

list_for_each_entry@p1(x,...) { <... x =@p2 E ...> }

@@
expression x,E;
position r.p1,r.p2;
statement S;
@@

*x =@p2 E
...
list_for_each_entry@p1(x,...) S
// </smpl>
