I am all for your cleanup here, but two nits:

Why not rename list_head while at it? I would vote for just "struct
list" ... the name is long, and I like my lines to fit 80 columns.

Second, if we want to force people to change, we should remove "list_t"
too to prevent new uses creeping in. Plus, like Linus says, it is often
to break stuff and cleanup the mess...

The attached patch implements the above. A

s/list_t/struct list/ and s/struct list_head/struct list/

over the rest of the kernel will complete the job.
