lib/string: Make memzero_explicit() inline instead of external

With the use of the barrier implied by barrier_data(), there is no need
for memzero_explicit() to be extern. Making it inline saves the overhead
of a function call, and allows the code to be reused in arch/*/purgatory
without having to duplicate the implementation.
