And make sure this matches how you call yourself above.

Drop that comment.  As already has been pointed out, say that in the
proposed commit log message, perhaps like this:

        Subject: skip_prefix(): rewrite as a loop

        Instead of letting strlen() to scan the prefix once and then
        strncmp() to scan it again, rewrite it as a single loop,
        using the logic similar to starts_with() in strbuf.c.

This for() loop that does not have a loop-control condition looks a
bit weird, though.  If we were to use for() that is not "for (;;)",
it would be more natural to write something like this:

        for (; *prefix && *str == *prefix; prefix++, str++)
                ; /* keep going while they match */
        ... decide what to return here ...

but that would make you check *prefix/*str twice for the final
round, so it is not very optimal.  If we want to say "the loop is
endless and we exit explicitly from inside with our own logic", then

        while (1) {
                ... what you have inside the loop ...

would be easier on the eyes (you can do s/while (1)/for (;;)/, too).
