Subject: [PATCH v4 10/12] string: factorize skip_spaces and export it to be generally available

On the following sentence:
    while (*s && isspace(*s))
        s++;

If *s == 0, isspace() evaluates to ((_ctype[*s] & 0x20) != 0), which
evaluates to ((0x08 & 0x20) != 0) which equals to 0 as well.
If *s == 1, we depend on isspace() result anyway.

In other words, "a char equals zero is never a space". So remove this check.
Also, *s != 0 is by far the most common case (non-empty string).

Fixed const return as noticed by Jan Engelhardt and James Bottomley
