  Different than strstr, wcsstr still uses an O(m*n) algorithm that might
be considered a security issue (although BZ 23865 was marked security-
since there is no actual application impact). 

The gnulib recently added a wrapper to fix it [1] and it is used as the
base de str-two-way.h implementation. This patch adds a similar
implementation, and different than strstr, neither the "shift table"
optimization nor the self-adapting filtering check is used because it
would result in a too-large shift table (and it also simplifies the
implementation bit).

The patchset also added a proper tests for wcsstr, based on strstr one.

Changes from v1:
* Add more tests from gnulib.
* Removed unused macros from wcsstr.

Adhemerval Zanella (3):
  string: Remove c_strstr from test-strstr
  wcsmbs: Add test-wcsstr
  wcsmbs: Ensure wcstr worst-case linear execution time (BZ 23865)
