Commit Message

In preparation to limit the scope of the list iterator to the list
traversal loop, use a dedicated pointer pointing to the found element [1].

If no break is hit or the list is empty, 'label_ent' will be a bogus
pointer computed based on the head of the list.

In such a case &label_ent->list == &nd_mapping->labels, which will break
the list properties when passed to list_move(). Therefore list_move()
is only called if it is actually guaranteed that an element was found
within the list iteration.
