Stupid me. I only tested the single byte fill version.

Here are the numbers for my for loop version and your multi
byte fill version for CRIS:

For loops 2.867568 5.620561 8.128734 28.286289
Multi byte fill 2.868031 5.670782 6.312027 11.336015

And here are the numbers for my P4:

For loops 3.060262 5.927378 8.796814 30.659818
Multi byte fill 3.126607 5.898459 7.096685 13.135379

So there is no doubt that the multi byte version is a clear
winner (which was expected, I suppose).

Here is the code that I used:

char *strncpy(char *dest, const char *src, size_t count)
{
char *tmp = dest;

while (count && *src) {
*tmp++ = *src++;
count--;
}

if (count) {
size_t count2;

while (count & (sizeof(long) - 1)) {
*tmp++ = '\0';
count--;
}

count2 = count / sizeof(long);
while (count2) {
*((long *)tmp)++ = '\0';
count2--;
}

count &= (sizeof(long) - 1);
while (count) {
*tmp++ = '\0';
count--;
}
}

return dest;
}
