I implemented your suggestion in patch 1 as it will produce simpler and
faster code. However, one of the changes in my patchset is to wake up
all the readers in the wait list. This means I have to jump over the
writers and wake up the readers behind them as well. See patch 11 for
details. As a result, I have to revert back to use list_add_tail() and
list_for_each_entry_safe() for the first pass. That is why the diff for
the whole patchset is just the below change. It is done on purpose, not
an omission.

Cheers,
Longman
