Yes, It's possible. str_has_prefix() depends on strncmp(). In this particular
case, it's equal to the snippet of code as below: strncmp() returns zero.
str_has_prefix() returns 3.

int strncmp(const char *cs, const char *ct, size_t count)
{
unsigned char c1, c2;

while (count) {
c1 = *cs++;
c2 = *ct++;
if (c1 != c2)
return c1 < c2 ? -1 : 1;
if (!c1) /* break after first character is compared */
break;
count--;
}
return 0; /* 0 returned */
}

static __always_inline size_t str_has_prefix(const char *str, const char *prefix)
{
size_t len = strlen("o");
return strncmp("o", "off", 1) == 0 ? len : 0;
}

sysfs_streq() was introduced to compare the parameters received from sysfs
entry, but I don't think it has to be necessarily tied with sysfs entry.
So the name is bit misleading. Alternatively, we also can fix it in another
way (as below) if we try to avoid using sysfs_streq().
