:) have searched it

   *field_at_offset(void **, elm, (entry) + QTAILQ_NEXT_OFFSET) = NULL;
   *field_at_offset(void ***, elm, (entry) + QTAILQ_PREV_OFFSET) =
       *field_at_offset(void ***, head, QTAILQ_LAST_OFFSET);
   **field_at_offset(void ***, head, QTAILQ_LAST_OFFSET) = (elm);
   *field_at_offset(void ***, head, QTAILQ_LAST_OFFSET) =
        field_at_offset(void **, elm, (entry) + QTAILQ_NEXT_OFFSET);

That was for the insert of course.

A lot of * for my taste and we still have the QTAILQ_NEXT_OFFSET
and QTAILQ_PREV_OFFSET macros which are supposed to capture
what QTAILQRawEntry does (namely where is the next and the
prev pointer within the entry -- not the element). 

Obviously I'm biased too ;)

Me scratching head. This is the place where we pinpoint the qtailq 
entry which is at offset entry within the element and reinterpret
the pointer as a pointer to QTAILQRawEntry. In the end we end up
with a void pointer to the next or prev element.

I think
#define QTAILQ_RAW_NEXT(elm, entry_offset)                                      
        ((field_at_offset(elm, entry_offset, QTAILQRawEntry *)->tqe_next)
would be more readable though.

Could you explain whats wrong with that?

Thank you very much for commenting!
