rbtree: adjust node color in __rb_erase_color() only when necessary
Michel Lespinasse [Mon, 8 Oct 2012 23:30:50 +0000 (16:30 -0700)]
In __rb_erase_color(), we were always setting a node to black after
exiting the main loop.  And in one case, after fixing up the tree to
satisfy all rbtree invariants, we were setting the current node to root
just to guarantee a loop exit, at which point the root would be set to
black.  However this is not necessary, as the root of an rbtree is already
known to be black.  The only case where the color flip is required is when
we exit the loop due to the current node being red, and it's easiest to
just do the flip at that point instead of doing it after the loop.
