SubjectRe: [PATCH V2 -tip] lib,x86_64: improve the performance of memcpy() for unaligned copy

I have tested on my Core2 Duo machine with your benchmark tool. Attachment is the
test result. But the result is different with yours on Atom, It seems the performance
is better with this patch.

According to these two different result, maybe we need optimize memcpy() by CPU
model.

Thanks
