Subject: [PATCH RFC] x86, boot: add missing declaration of string functions

Add the missing declarations of basic string functions to string.h to allow
a clean build.

Fixes: commit 5be865661516 ("String-handling functions for the new x86 setup code.")
Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@...dl.org>

sparse issues a set of warnings about missing declarations:
arch/x86/purgatory/../boot/string.c:18:5: warning: symbol 'memcmp' was not declared. Should it be static?
arch/x86/purgatory/../boot/string.c:26:5: warning: symbol 'strcmp' was not declared. Should it be static?

arch/x86/purgatory/../boot/string.c:69:14: warning: symbol 'atou' was not declared. Should it be static?
arch/x86/purgatory/../boot/string.c:99:20: warning: symbol 'simple_strtoull' was not declared. Should it be static?
arch/x86/purgatory/../boot/string.c:128:8: warning: symbol 'strlen' was not declared. Should it be static?
arch/x86/purgatory/../boot/string.c:142:6: warning: symbol 'strstr' was not declared. Should it be static?

This patch has one checkpatch warning about the use of simple_strtoul which
is obsolete. As this is an independent implementation it is not clear if
the changes made in simple_strtoul -> _kstrtoull might also need to be
applied here ?

Patch was compile tested with: x86_64_defconfig

Patch is against 4.9.0 (localversion-next is next-20161223)
