Subject[PATCH 1/4] list.h: Add list_splice_tail() and list_splice_tail_init()
Date
If you are using linked lists for queues list_splice() will not do what
you would expect even if you use the elements passed reversed. We need
to handle these differently. We add list_splice_tail() and
list_splice_tail_init()
