[PATCH v3] faster strlen on x64


Afetr testing by Liuba I prepared final version of my patch
(attached and on neleai/strlen branch.).

I used hooking to examine behaviour of implementations in wild, it can be 
downloaded on
(Run ./benchmarks for unit tests, read TODO as it is not complete.)

No aditional failures on x64.

Uses of strlen_* in strcat are inlined for now, optimizations will come
after I deal with strcpy.

It could be also use in linker, I split this functionality into
additional patch.

	* sysdeps/x86_64/strnlen.S: Likewise.

	* sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/Makefile (sysdep_routines):
	Remove all multiarch strlen and strnlen versions.
	* sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/ifunc-impl-list.c: Update.
	Remove strlen and strnlen related parts.

	* sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/strcat-sse2-unaligned.S: Update.
	Inline strlen part.
