Subject[PATCH 1/3] perfcounter: create new chain_for_each_child() iterator
Date
Iterating through children of a node in the callchain tree shows
something that may be quite confusing at a first glance. The head
is the children field of the parent and the list nodes are in the
brothers field of the children.

This is because the childs are linked to the parent as a list of
"brothers" using the "children" list of the parent as a head:

---------------
| Parent (head) |-------------------------------------
--------------- |
| |
children |
| |
----------- ----------- |
| 1st child |---brother---| 2nd child |---brother-----
----------- -----------
This makes the following strange pattern often occuring:

list_for_each_entry(child, &parent->children, brothers) {
// do something with children
}
Abstract it to chain_for_each_child() to factorize and simplify
this pattern.
