Doesn't solve the typeness. Anyway, this work had already been done by
Thomas 'Dent' Mirlacher. We might want to work on that.

Subject: [PATCH] adding slist.h: simple single-linked-list helper functions

hi,

this patch adds slist.h, a header-file providing simple single-linked-list
helper functions.

especially slist_for_each will improve:
o readability
o performance (due to the use of prefetch())
wherever it's used

please apply,

tm
