Shouldn't this be looking for one block of memory inside another?
That is, the function should accept two size arguments, as well as two
pointers.  That's more general.

A problem with mixed-mode operations like memstr is that the number of
operators explodes combinatorially with the number of operands.  For
example, if there are 4 operands, one would need 16 function flavors.
