rbtree: empty nodes have no color
Empty nodes have no color. We can make use of this property to simplify the code emitted by the RB_EMPTY_NODE and RB_CLEAR_NODE macros. Also, we can get rid of the rb_init_node function which had been introduced by commit 88d19cf37952 ("timers: Add rb_init_node() to allow for stack allocated rb nodes") to avoid some issue with the empty node's color not being initialized. I'm not sure what the RB_EMPTY_NODE checks in rb_prev() / rb_next() are doing there, though. axboe introduced them in commit 10fd48f2376d ("rbtree: fixed reversed RB_EMPTY_NODE and rb_next/prev"). The way I see it, the 'empty node' abstraction is only used by rbtree users to flag nodes that they haven't inserted in any rbtree, so asking the predecessor or successor of such nodes doesn't make any sense. One final rb_init_node() caller was recently added in sysctl code to implement faster sysctl name lookups. This code doesn't make use of RB_EMPTY_NODE at all, and from what I could see it only called rb_init_node() under the mistaken assumption that such initialization was required before node insertion.
