/*
 * strlen.S (c) 1995 David Mosberger (davidm@cs.arizona.edu)
 *
 * 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).
