shared: add nm_cmp_int2ptr_p_with_data() helper

A cmp() implementation, for sorting an array with pointers, where each
pointer is an inteter according to GPOINTER_TO_INT().

That cames for example handy, if you have a GHashTable with keys
GINT_TO_POINTER(). Then you get the list of keys via
g_hash_table_get_keys_as_array() and want to sort them.
