Honestly, I did that just because find_closest() and
find_closest_descending() are macros (i.e. to be consistent wrt them).
I see no drawbacks in making this a regular function indeed; just, do
you have any advice about where should it live?

Looking at it, it seems that also __find_closest() actually needs
math.h because it (apparently incorrectly[*]) uses
DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST()..

[*]Indeed it seems there is another issue here about find_closest():
for example it picks the 1st element while searching for "2" in an
array like this: {1,2,..} ..This needs to be reported/fixed..
