Subject: [PATCH] lib/string.c: make strncmp() smaller

Space savings on x86_64:

	add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-29 (-29)
	Function                                     old     new   delta
	strncmp                                       67      38     -29

Space savings on arm:

	add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-60 (-60)
	Function                                     old     new   delta
	strncmp                                      116      56     -60
