Version 2 of the patch removes the strchr define completely as

GLIBC uses strchr (s, '\0') as an idiom to find the end of a string.
This is transformed into rawmemchr by the bits/string2.h header.
However this is generally slower than strlen on most targets, even when
an optimized rawmemchr implementation exists.  Since GCC7 optimizes
strchr (s, '\0') to strlen (s) + s, the GLIBC headers should not
transform this to rawmemchr.  As GCC recognizes strchr as a builtin,
defining strchr as the builtin is not useful.

Regress passes, OK for commit?

	* string/bits/string2.h (strchr): Remove define.

Please post a version which removes the definition of 
_HAVE_STRING_ARCH_strchr as well.

See https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2016-11/msg00853.html
which removes all of the redundant STRING_ARCH defines.
