Subject[PATCH] memchr (trivial) optimization
Date
While profiling something completely unrelated, I noticed
that on the workloads I used memchr for, I saw a 30%-40% improvement
in performance, with the following trivial changes...
(basically, it saves 3 operations for each call)

$ diff -Nurp linux/lib/string.c{-old,}
