amd64: implement strlen in assembly, take 2
Tested with glibc test suite.
The C variant in libkern performs excessive branching to find the zero
byte instead of using the bsfq instruction. The same code patched to use
it is still slower than the routine implemented here as the compiler
keeps neglecting to perform certain optimizations (like using leaq).
On top of that the routine can be used as a starting point for copyinstr
which operates on words intead of bytes.
The previous attempt had an instance of swapped operands to andq when
dealing with fully aligned case, which had a side effect of breaking the
code for certain corner cases. Noted by jrtc27.
