Currently, modpost manages modules in a singly linked list; it adds
a new node to the head, and traverses the list from new to old.

It works, but the error messages are shown in the reverse order.

If you have a Makefile like this:

  obj-m += foo.o bar.o

then, modpost shows error messages in bar.o, foo.o, in this order.

Use a doubly linked list to keep the order in modules.order; use
list_add_tail() for the node addition and list_for_each_entry() for
the list traverse.

Now that the kernel's list macros have been imported to modpost, I will
use them actively going forward.
