Subject[PATCH] Corrections to Documentation/rbtree.txt
From: Ian Abbott <abbotti@mev.co.uk>

The description of the rb_entry() macro in Documentation/rbtree.txt seems incorrect.
This patch improves it (hopefully). Also I changed the example code to call the
previous 'my_search()' example instead of an undefined 'mysearch()'.
