Fixes [BZ# 28755] for wcsncmp by redirecting length >= 2^56 to
__wcscmp_avx2. For x86_64 this covers the entire address range so any
length larger could not possibly be used to bound `s1` or `s2`.

Optimization are primarily to the loop logic and how the page cross
logic interacts with the loop.

The page cross logic is at times more expensive for short strings near
the end of a page but not crossing the page. This is done to retest
the page cross conditions with a non-faulty check and to improve the
logic for entering the loop afterwards. This is only particular cases,
however, and is general made up for by more than 10x improvements on
the transition from the page cross -> loop case.

The non-page cross cases are improved most for smaller sizes [0, 128]
and go about even for (128, 4096]. The loop page cross logic is
improved so some more significant speedup is seen there as well.

test-strcmp, test-strncmp, test-wcscmp, and test-wcsncmp all pass.

Numbers attached in reply.

Numbers are geometric mean of N=20 runs.
Numbers where collected on: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/208921/intel-core-i71165g7-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-70-ghz-with-ipu.html

The 'score' column is (time current) / (time new). The "greener" the
number the the larger the improvement. The "redder" the larger the
regression.

Some notes on the numbers:

There are three cases of regressions:

1. Small values at the page cross case. The regression is because the
new logic spends extra logic checking if the page cross was a false
positive and setting up the logic to transition to the loop case more
smoothly. I don't see any way around this and on the flip side of the
regressions is 500% speedups in either the false positive case or
contuation.

2. Cases where the string barely crosses the page. The regression is
because the current logic does a single byte loop on exit which is
ultimately a faster check for very small strings. The flip side of
this is 20000% speedups. I think the logic that has us implement
strncmp with vectors also supports replacing the one at a time byte
loop for something that scales better.

3. The avx2 case for [128, 512] is within [-5%, +5%]. There are some
regressions here. I am unsure what exacting why this is the case. In
general I am less happy with the quality of the avx2 implementation
and believe it still needs some work. I still think its an improvement
because of the gains in the [0, 128] case, many of the page cross
cases and the [513, inf] cases but if people think otherwise it may be
best to skip the patch. Note the patch is also for [BZ# 28755]
although a seperate fix for that will be simple enough.

Aside from the 3 regressions there are mostly modest improvements then
some dramatic improvements where the one at a time byte loops where
eliminated.
