> Hi,
> As part of feedback on the Foreign Memory API (when experimenting with its usage internally in the JDK), a small number
> of potential usability enhancements could be made to the API. This is the fourth such, and last on my current todo
> list.  This change proposes to add a new method:
> MemorySegment::mismatch
> The mismatch semantic is very useful for building equality and comparison logic on top of segments. I found that I
> needed such when modeling and comparing native socket address in the JDK implementation. It is possible to write your
> own, but requires a non-trivial amount of not-trivial code - to do it right! I also think that we can provide a more
> efficient implementation building on top of the JDK's internal mismatch support.  I still need to do some perf testing
> and add a micro-benchmake ( Maurizio suggested possibly amending TestBulkOps ). There is also the question about
> possibly improving the JDK's internal implementation to work on long sizes (which could be done separately). For now, I
> just want to share the idea, along with the proposed specification and initial implementation.  Comments welcome.

  Move implementation into vectorizedMismatchLarge, and address other review comments.
