Finish implementing P0426R1 "Constexpr for std::char_traits" for C++17

As discussed in PR c++/80265 ("__builtin_{memcmp,memchr,strlen} are
not usable in constexpr functions"), use __builtin_constant_p to tell
whether we can defer to a constexpr algorithm.

I used __always_inline__ just to be thorough.  It isn't really really
necessary as far as I could determine.

Changes like these:

	 if (__n == 0)
	   return 0;
 -	return wmemcmp(__s1, __s2, __n);
 +	else
 +	  return wmemcmp(__s1, __s2, __n);

are necessary otherwise G++ complains that we're calling a
non-constexpr function, which looks like a a manifestation of PR67026
to me.
