When we are reloading the list of packs, we check whether a
particular pack has been loaded. This is slightly tricky,
because we load packs based on the presence of their ".idx"
files, but record the name of the matching ".pack" file.
Therefore we want to compare their bases.

The existing code stripped off ".idx" from a file we found,
then compared that whole base length to strings containing
the ".pack" version. This meant we could end up comparing
bytes past what the ".pack" string contained, if the ".idx"
file name was much longer.

In practice, it worked OK because memcmp would end up seeing
a difference in the two strings and would return early
before hitting the full length. However, memcmp may
sometimes read extra bytes past a difference (e.g., because
it is comparing 64-bit words), or is even free to compare in
reverse order.

Furthermore, our memcmp made no guarantees that we matched
the whole pack name, up to ".pack". So "foo.idx" would match
"foo-bar.pack", which is wrong (but does not typically
happen, because our pack names have a fixed size).

We can fix both issues, avoid magic numbers, and document
that we expect to compare against a string with ".pack" by
using strip_suffix.

This is a teeny bit less efficient than it could be, because we are
verifying our assumption at run-time that each pack name ends in
".pack". I'd venture to say if we cared about efficiency here, the low
hanging fruit would be to avoid the O(n^2) loop to find duplicate pack
names in the first place.
