Subject: [PATCH V4 4/4] x86/resctrl: Use appropriate API for strings terminated by newline

The user input to files in the resctrl filesystem are expected to be
terminated with a newline. Testing the user input includes a test for
the presence of a newline and then replacing the newline with NUL
byte followed by comparison using strcmp().

sysfs_streq() exists to test if strings are equal, treating both NUL and
newline-then-NUL as equivalent string terminations. Even more,
sysfs_match_string() exists to match a given string in an array using
sysfs_streq().

Replace existing strcmp() comparisons of strings that are terminated
with a newline with more appropriate sysfs_streq() via the
sysfs_match_string() API that can perform the match across the different
mode strings that are already maintained in an array.
