Wrong answer.
The very concept of change-set is that you can work on a patch and
rework it as necessary
there is absolutely no reason to create a second patch on top of a
faulty patch not merged yet.
what should be done is to rework the original patch.
It is the whole point of review-before-merge that gerrit offer.

There should not be a previous patch at all.. you should amend it not
create another one on top of it
