    volser: ensure GCTrans transaction walk remains valid
    Commit bc56f5cc97a982ee29219e6f258b372dbfe1a020 ("volser: Delete
    timed-out temporary volumes") introduced new logic to GCTrans().
    Unfortunately, part of this logic temporarily drops VTRANS_LOCK in order
    to call VPurgeVolume().  While this lock is dropped, other volser_trans
    may be added or deleted from the allTrans list.  Therefore, GCTrans
    should not trust the next pointer (nt = tt->next) which was obtained
    before the lock was dropped.
    One symptom observed in the field was a segfault while examining
    tt->volume.  Neither tt nor volume were valid any longer, since tt had
    been set from a stale nt at the top of the loop.
    To repair, improve, and clarify this logic:
    - Refactor so nt is assigned correctly and as late as possible.
    - Add comments to explain the placement of the assigns to future
