Thanks for your work. Yeah, it's another path that needs to be
optimized for huge dirs.

The overall looks good to me, some nits below...

How about just use `da' and `db' for size?

maybe just use `sorted' name here?

I think we could list_del here, and use list_for_each_entry

After list_del, no need to init_list_head again.
The another reason is that some list_add_tail implementation
could check elements isn't in a list first.

no need to NULLify it..
