Subject: [PATCH] ARC: [lib] strchr breakage in Big-endian configuration

From: Joern Rennecke <joern.rennecke@...ecosm.com>

For a search buffer, 2 byte aligned, strchr() was returning pointer
outside of buffer (buf - 1)

------------->8----------------
    // Input buffer (default 4 byte aigned)
    char *buffer = "1AA_";

    // actual search start (to mimick 2 byte alignment)
    char *current_line = &(buffer[2]);

    // Character to search for
    char c = 'A';

    char *c_pos = strchr(current_line, c);

    printf("%s\n", c_pos) --> 'AA_' as oppose to 'A_'
------------->8----------------
