I rechecked where I was using it and can easily eliminate the reference
making the patch submitted unnecessary.

Curiously enough I also ran a check to see where strnicmp is being used
in all of U-Boot, since I was considering using it instead, and it
doesn't seem to be used at all either even though its already in
string.c.  I will avoid using it as well since its an obvious candidate
for elimination.
