So I think that for the hash iterator it might actually be simpler.

My solution to making 'break' work in the iterator is:

	for (bkt = 0, node = NULL; bkt < HASH_SIZE(name) && node == NULL; bkt++)
		hlist_for_each_entry(obj, node, &name[bkt], member)

We initialize our node loop cursor with NULL in the external loop, and the
external loop will have a new condition to loop while that cursor is NULL.

My logic is that we can only 'break' when we are iterating over an object in the
internal loop. If we're iterating over an object in that loop then 'node != NULL'.

This way, if we broke from within the internal loop, the external loop will see
node as not NULL, and so it will stop looping itself. On the other hand, if the
internal loop has actually ended, then node will be NULL, and the outer loop
will keep running.

Is there anything I've missed?


Thanks,
