  [PMC] Optimized NS's get_pointer_keyed_str VTABLE.

This improves the performance of stress2.pasm by 2.725%. Interested parties may
be able to squeeze out another improvement by revising this logic.

Note that this demonstrates a systemic problem regarding the question of "Does
something exist in this hash?" versus "There's something, but it's null." If
PMCNULL ever stops also being 0, this function will return strange results.
