I can confirm that.

One difference is that the one in lib/string.c always return -1/0/1,
while the m68k version can return other negative or positive numbers.

However, adding:

if (res < 0) return -1;
if (res > 0) return 1;

to the m68k version doesn't make a difference.

Renaming the m68k version (changed to -1/0/1) to m68k_strcmp(), and
the generic version to lib_strcmp(), and adding a wrapper that calls
and compares both, shows that both functions do return the same value,
and the test succeeds.

Moving the m68k version inside lib/string.c makes the test pass, too.
So it must be related to the function being inline, and gcc making
(incorrect) assumptions...
