In a rewrite phase handler you are _not_ expected to return a 
response.  If you do return it, you have to be careful to properly 
cancel additional request processing.

Moreover, the server rewrite phase is _not_ executed for 
locations.  Instead, it is a phase for rewrites affecting the 
whole server block.  The configuration example you've provided 
makes no sense for a module which works in the server rewrite 

For returning a custom response in a specifically set location it 
might be better idea to use the content phase, or, even simplier, 
to register a location-specific content handler.  See empty gif 
module sources for a relatively simple example.

This is not expected to prevent anything from being executed 
multiple times.  Rather, it will prevent your code from executing 
when there is more than one reference to the request.

You may want to read some guides on writing nginx modules, as it 
is more or less clear you don't understand basics.  In particular, 
Evan Miller's one might be a good start:
