Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] powerpc/lib: Optimisation of string functions (mainly for PPC32)
This serie intend to optimise string functions for PPC32 in the
same spirit as already done on PPC64.

The first patch moves PPC32 specific functions from string.S into
a dedicated file named string_32.S
The second patch rewrites __clear_user() by using dcbz intruction
The third patch rewrites memcmp() to compare 32 bits words instead
of comparing byte per byte.
The fourth patch removes NUL size verification from the assembly
functions so that GCC can optimise them out when the size is constant
The last patch inlines memcmp() for constant sizes <= 16

As shown in each individual commit log, second, third and last patches
provides significant improvment.

Changes in v2:
- Moved out the patch removing the hot loop alignment on PPC32
- Squashed the changes related to NUL size verification in a single patch
- Reordered the patches in a more logical order
- Modified the inlining patch to avoid warning about impossibility to version symbols.
