Could you reduce that patch to not copy all of queue.h?
TAILQ_HEAD_INITIALIZER can be replaced by a TAILQ_INIT() call after
variable definitions, and we do not need stuff like
TAILQ_FOREACH_REVERSE. The other option is to reimplement the needed
operations under a different name, so that people don't accidentally use
other macros that are missing in old queue.h revisions.
