add argv_split()



argv_split() is a helper function which takes a string, splits it at
whitespace, and returns a NULL-terminated argv vector.  This is
deliberately simple - it does no quote processing of any kind.

[ Seems to me that this is something which is already being done in
  the kernel, but I couldn't find any other implementations, either to
  steal or replace.  Keep an eye out. ]
