Unfortunately it looks like it'll need my strsep and strtok patches too, ie. it'll become a
huge patch with many diffs in GLIBC, so testing it causes no unexpected changes on
several targets would become a huge amount of work.
So I think it's better to remove all these defines in one go in a way that causes no diffs.
We could either do that after finishing dealing with all the string2.h optimizations (ie. after
committing my various oustanding patches) or as a separate patch that we commit
before making any changes to the current optimizations in string2.h (I don't believe
any of the _HAVE_STRING_ARCH_xxx are ever defined while building GLIBC).
