See this description, which was part of the patch:
+ This function searches memory starting at <<*<[src]>>> for the
+ character <[c]>. The search only ends with the first occurrence
+ of <[c]>; in particular, <<NUL>> does not terminate the search.
+ No bounds checking is performed, so this function should only
+ be used when it is certain that the character <[c]> will be found.
