Entry list for disk-order update.
This structure is used to store a linked list of struct
estat in (mostly) ascending inode order. It is used in
lstat() all (needed) entries in (hopefully) an order which minimizes the backtracking of the storage media. What this means is: The harddisk head should go straight in one direction, and avoid seeking as much as possible.
