/* Finds length of a 0-terminated string. Optimized for the Alpha
architecture:
- memory accessed as aligned quadwords only
- uses bcmpge to compare 8 bytes in parallel
- does binary search to find 0 byte in last
quadword (HAKMEM needed 12 instructions to
do this instead of the 9 instructions that
binary search needs). */
