It turns out that the test "malloc/tst-malloc-thread-fail" FAILs even
without my implementation.

Can this get upstream review?

With the provided benchmark test from the source tree,
this optimized strnlen is 1.3~4 times faster for inputs longer than 16,
and is similar in speed for inputs shorter than that.
