Make the "word-at-a-time" helper functions more commonly usable

I have a new optimized x86 "strncpy_from_user()" that will use these
same helper functions for all the same reasons the name lookup code uses
them.  This is preparation for that.

This moves them into an architecture-specific header file.  It's
architecture-specific for two reasons:

 - some of the functions are likely to want architecture-specific
   implementations.  Even if the current code happens to be "generic" in
   the sense that it should work on any little-endian machine, it's
   likely that the "multiply by a big constant and shift" implementation
   is less than optimal for an architecture that has a guaranteed fast
   bit count instruction, for example.

 - I expect that if architectures like sparc want to start playing
   around with this, we'll need to abstract out a few more details (in
   particular the actual unaligned accesses).  So we're likely to have
   more architecture-specific stuff if non-x86 architectures start using
   this.

   (and if it turns out that non-x86 architectures don't start using
   this, then having it in an architecture-specific header is still the
   right thing to do, of course)
