Subject[RFC/PATCH] Introduce list_get() and list_get_tail()
Date
From: Dmitry Torokhov <dtor@mail.ru>

Add primitives to access first and last elements of a list instead
of accessng pointers directly.

Signed-off-by: Dmitry Torokhov <dtor@mail.ru>
---
We have primitives to iterate over lists and to add/delete elements,
why not for accessing head/tail?
