description?  descriptor? descendent?  oh, it's "descending".  So
let's use "descending"!

I think it's good to put possibly-useful stuff like this into
includes/linux, particularly when we already have several usage sites. 
But we don't _have_ to keep putting things into kernel.h.  Maybe a new
include/linux/handy-macros.h or include/linux/find_closest.h?
