    The linux/list.h implementation is a bit weird at first (at least I
    found it so) but is perfectly adequate and very neat once you get used
    to it. Here is your example program rewritten to use linux/list.h
    (modulo insertion/traversal order - easily changeable):

    ------------------------ <list.c> ------------------------
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include "list.h"

    struct node {
    int data;
    struct list_head list;

    int main(void)
    struct list_head queue, *tmp;
    struct node n1, n2, n3; = 1; = 2; = 3;

    list_add(&n1.list, &queue);
    list_add(&n2.list, &queue);
    list_add(&n3.list, &queue);
    tmp =;
    while(tmp != &queue) {
    struct node *n = list_entry(tmp, struct node, list);
    printf("%d\n", n->data);
    tmp = tmp->next;
    ------------------------ </list.c> -----------------------
