Summary

This change optimizes the assign() methods for string where either the contents or lengths are compile time known constants. For small strings (< min_cap) we can execute the assignment entirely inline. For strings up to 128 bytes we allow the compiler to efficiently inline the copy operation after we call the offline __resize<>() method. Short / long branches are taken at the call site for better branch prediction and allowing FDO optimizations.
