I'm just saying that waiting for that is likely going to take
several days, as we don't have the power to force contributors of,
say, the alpha, hppa and mips ports to do the needed testing.
And in the meantime you risk having to deal with any merge conflicts
that arise with such a large patch.

Changing your code to use the existing next field and adding a prev
field should be a minimal change and it wouldn't require all the
architectures to be updated at once, so we could commit it sooner.
If you don't have time for that, I could look at it as my time permits.
