Subject[PATCH v2 07/12] rbtree: adjust root color in rb_insert_color() only when necessary
Date
The root node of an rbtree must always be black. However, rb_insert_color()
only needs to maintain this invariant when it has been broken - that is,
when it exits the loop due to the current (red) node being the root.
In all other cases (exiting after tree rotations, or exiting due to
an existing black parent) the invariant is already satisfied, so there
is no need to adjust the root node color.
