Add a string_view version of startswith

Makes sure that the string is longer than prefix, so that strncmp will
do the right thing even if the string is not null-terminated.

For use in my string_view conversion patch:

	* gdbsupport/common-utils.h (startswith): Add an overloaded version
	that takes gdb::string_view arguments.
