Introduce a handy list_first_entry macro

There are many places in the kernel where the construction like

   foo = list_entry(head->next, struct foo_struct, list);

are used.
The code might look more descriptive and neat if using the macro

   list_first_entry(head, type, member) \
             list_entry((head)->next, type, member)

Here is the macro itself and the examples of its usage in the generic code.
 If it will turn out to be useful, I can prepare the set of patches to
inject in into arch-specific code, drivers, networking, etc.
