    Hello,
    is list_entry name really that bad? We have well established
    list_entry name since at least 2.2.0, and having two same functions
    with two different names will (IMHO) cause more damage than benefit
    from "clearer" name is.
    Thanks,
    Petr Vandrovec

    P.S.: I converted whole matroxfb to use
    list_entry(xxx, struct matrox_fb_info, fbcon) instead of
    (struct matrox_fb_info*)xxx so that I can move fbcon field from
    first position in matrox_fb_info - so I'm personally interested
    in backward source compatibility.
