Subject[patch 03/10] Get rid of memcpy gcc warning workaround.
From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

Compile smp.o with -Wno-nonnull so gcc stops warning about memcpy
being used with a null parameter. Also remove the workaround code
and use a char * cast instead of a void * cast to do computations.
