Hmm... for example we still have this
brother1[70-80]  res[90-150]  brother2[151-160]

if we call probe_resource(res, new_res, 16, par, 1, 0xff,

I think this call is used to allocate a res of size 16 under res.
When there is no enough free space, it will expend res, and res->parent.

While in this situation, res doesn't have enough free space. so it need
to expend itself. 

In the probe_resource() it tries to extend res on the right side. 
So even there is enough space between brother1 and res, I think the
probe_resource() will not return 0.

Do you think my analysis is correct?
