Hmm... I think the result is returned by this while loop.
+       while (n_size >= needed_size) {
+               ret = allocate_resource(b_res, busn_res, n_size,
+                               b_res->start + skip_nr, b_res->end,
+                               1, NULL, NULL);
+               if (!ret)
+                       return ret;
+               n_size--;
+       }
__find_res_top_free_size() is not called.

BTW, even if this value is returned by __find_res_top_free_size(), or
returned after this function is called, the purpose of the
__find_res_top_free_size() is to get the biggest free space under the
first parameter?
