lib/string.c: remove duplicated function
lib/string.c contains two functions, strnicmp and strncasecmp, which do roughly the same thing, namely compare two strings case-insensitively up to a given bound. They have slightly different implementations, but the only important difference is that strncasecmp doesn't handle len==0 appropriately; it effectively becomes strcasecmp in that case. strnicmp correctly says that two strings are always equal in their first 0 characters. strncasecmp is the POSIX name for this functionality. So rename the non-broken function to the standard name. To minimize the impact on the rest of the kernel (and since both are exported to modules), make strnicmp a wrapper for strncasecmp.
