strbuf: introduce starts_with() and ends_with()
prefixcmp() and suffixcmp() share the common "cmp" suffix that typically are used to name functions that can be used for ordering, but they can't, because they are not antisymmetric: prefixcmp("foo", "foobar") < 0 prefixcmp("foobar", "foo") == 0 We in fact do not use these functions for ordering. Replace them with functions that just check for equality. Add starts_with() and end_with() that will be used to replace prefixcmp() and suffixcmp(), respectively, as the first step. These are named after corresponding functions/methods in programming languages, like Java, Python and Ruby. In vcs-svn/fast_export.c, there was already an ends_with() function that did the same thing. Let's use the new one instead while at it.
