I agree with your idea, but Ma Ling said this way may cause the i-cache
miss problem.
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=128746120107953&w=2
(The size of the i-cache is 32K, the size of memcpy() in my patch is 560Byte,
and the size of the last version in tip tree is 400Byte).

But I have not tested it, so I don't know the real result. Maybe we should
try to implement the new memcpy() first.
