This patch replaces a macro for testing string equality used many times with loops over arrays of pointers. Saves about 700bytes on a cf build.

Saves ~1200 Byte on a nano 2G build.

Looks like a reasonable thing to do.

My initial testing looks good. I'll report back after some more testing in a couple of days.

Maybe you could save even more binsize by factoring out the loops as well (into a small utility function)?

Thanks for testing, i made a quick test with the matching loop broken out into a separate function but it made no significant change to size (12 bytes bigger on cf, same size on arm (gigabeast))

My testing over the last few days has not revealed any issues. I think you can commit this patch. Cheers!
