Subject: [PATCH] strverscmp fix

Fixing strverscmp behavior to match glibc has been an open item for a
while. There's a patch (or rather replacement) from Sergey Dmitrouk
that's been pending review serious for a few months now, and while it
reportedly works, I found myself writing my own version in the process
of reviewing and trying to understand all the cases. The attached is
what I ended up with, and I believe it's correct and about 20%
smaller. I couldn't find any further ways to simplify.
