Subject[PATCH -mm v2 04/11] rbtree: add helpers to find nearest uncle node
Date
It is useful to search an augmented rbtree based on the augmented
data, ie. not using the sort key as the primary search criterium.
However, we may still need to limit our search to a sub-part of the
whole tree, using the sort key as limiters where we can search.

In that case, we may need to stop searching in one part of the tree,
and continue the search at the nearest (great-?)uncle node in a particular
direction.

Add helper functions to find the nearest uncle node.
