strlen() was used in Phabricator to check if a generic value is a non-empty string.
This behavior is deprecated since PHP 8.1. Phorge adopts phutil_nonempty_string() as a replacement.

Note: this may highlight other absurd input values that might be worth correcting
instead of just ignoring. If phutil_nonempty_string() throws an exception in your
instance, report it to Phorge to evaluate and fix that specific corner case.

Closes T15301

Test Plan

Thanks for this fix

Tested locally with / without HTTP Range playing an audio file.



✅ The HTTP range assumes string values like "bytes=0-" etc. and null but not other things.

The phutil_nonempty_string() will report alien values and that is OK.
