unix,windows,plan9: add Byte{Slice,Ptr}ToString functions

We already provide ByteSliceFromString and BytePtrFromString, and on
Windows we provide UTF16FromString, UTF16PtrFromString, UTF16ToString,
and UTF16PtrToString. So this commit fills in the remaining two
Byte-oriented functions: ByteSliceToString and BytePtrToString. Since
the existing two are available on windows, unix, and plan9, we add the
remaining two to the same places. This helps eliminate unsafe pointer
options in addition to triggering checkptr in Go 1.15, by eliminating
the use of prior idioms for these types of casts.
