yeah, we have both namespaces: symbols__ and symbol__, the first for
operations on rbtrees of the later, for instance, from symbol.h:

void symbol__delete(struct symbol *sym);
void symbols__delete(struct rb_root *symbols);

symbols__delete() will call symbol__delete() for each entry in that
rbtree.
