Performance

On my system (Linux/amd64), memchr is about an order of magnitude faster than the more idiomatic haystack.iter().position(|&b| b == needle):

test iterator          ... bench:       5,280 ns/iter (+/- 13) = 1893 MB/s
test iterator_reversed ... bench:       5,271 ns/iter (+/- 7) = 1897 MB/s
test libc_memchr       ... bench:         202 ns/iter (+/- 0) = 49504 MB/s
test libc_memrchr      ... bench:         197 ns/iter (+/- 1) = 50761 MB/s
