[PATCH] 0/4: Add the ability to splice a list into another list

Hi all,

These are preliminary patches to modify dmraid so that we can have
multiple raid_dev structures per physical device.  The DDF1
specification allows for a disk to participate in multiple RAID arrays,
which is what is gained from these patches.  They've been tested against + dmraid45 on Ubuntu 6.06, and seem to be pretty stable.  At
this stage, I'm looking for comments about the code because it touches
core dmraid code and could (but shouldn't) break support for hardware
that I don't have.

This first patch is a simple one that adds an operation to splice a
headless doubly-linked list into an existing headed list.  The headless
lists are created in the second patch.
