Add ptr-eq short-cut to compareByteArrays# primitive

This is an obvious optimisation whose overhead is neglectable but
which significantly simplifies the common uses of compareByteArrays#
which would otherwise require to make *careful* use of
reallyUnsafePtrEquality# or (equally fragile) byteArrayContents#
which can result in less optimal assembler code being generated.

Test Plan: carefully examined generated cmm/asm code; validate via phab
