Optimize expand_name_field() to speed up V4 index parsing.

 - strbuf_remove() in expand_name_field() is not exactly a good fit
   for stripping a part at the end, _setlen() would do the same job
   and is much cheaper.

 - the open-coded loop to find the end of the string in
   expand_name_field() can't beat an optimized strlen()

I used p0002-read-cache.sh to generate some performance data:

p0002-read-cache.sh w/100,000 files
Baseline         expand_name_field()
---------------------------------------
22.34(0.01+0.12) 21.14(0.03+0.01) -5.4%

p0002-read-cache.sh w/1,000,000 files
Baseline          expand_name_field()
-----------------------------------------
306.44(0.04+0.07) 295.42(0.01+0.07) -3.6%
