How about making the code self-documenting and more useful at the same

I like that idea - how's the following? I also took the liberty of
making the tag arguments be unsigned, since that is clearly the way they
are intended to be used.

Looks really good. Andrew will you pick it up?


Documentation changes to help radix tree users avoid overrunning the
tags array. RADIX_TREE_TAGS moves to linux/radix-tree.h and is now
known as RADIX_TREE_MAX_TAGS (Nick Piggin's idea). Tag parameters are
changed to unsigned, and some comments are updated.
