Subject: [PATCH 2/3] fortify: cosmetic cleanups to __compiletime_strlen

Two things I noticed in __compiletime_strlen:
1. A temporary, __p, is created+used to avoid repeated side effects from
   multiple evaluation of the macro parameter, but the macro parameter
   was being used accidentally in __builtin_object_size.
2. The temporary has a curious signedness and const-less qualification.
   Just use __auto_type.
3. (size_t)-1 is perhaps more readable as -1UL.
4. __p_size == -1UL when __builtin_object_size can't evaluate the
   object size at compile time. We could just reuse __ret and use one
   less variable here.
