NAME

       list_empty_careful - tests whether a list is

SYNOPSIS

       int list_empty_careful  (const struct list_head * head);

ARGUMENTS

       head   the list to test.

DESCRIPTION

       empty  _and_  checks that no other CPU might be in the process of still
       modifying either member

NOTE

       using list_empty_careful without synchronization can only  be  safe  if
       the  only  activity that can happen to the list entry is list_del_init.
       Eg. it cannot be used if another CPU could re-list_add it.
