 maybe it is the best to ignore the residue field completely and
 calculate for oneself.  This removes the need of reading the additional
 information from the transfer result data and the check if the residue
 and the calculated residue are the same.
 Even though Linux has a quirk for that, Darwin [1] just ignores this
 and I think it is a good idea.  Haiku [2] ignores the residue, too, and
 calculates it by itself.  Nobody seems to have a problem there.
