[PATCH hare v2] types::c: add fromstr_nul Export this patch

So C strings can be used without allocating them:

	use types::c;

	@symbol("puts") fn puts(s: *const char) int;

	export fn main() void = {
		puts(c::fromstr_nul("hello world!\0"));

v2: fix commit message (accidentally used printf instead of puts when
calling), and removed strings::hassuffix in favor of indexing directly

I was thinking that it might make sense to have this symbol name be much
shorter, since it's going to be used all the time in programs which have
to interop with C.


The latter might be nice if you do:

use c::{cstr};

printf(cstr("Hello %s!\0"), cstr("world\0"));

other ideas?
