Subject[PATCH 7/9] x86/lib/memcpy_64.S: Optimize memcpy by enhanced REP MOVSB/STOSB
Date
From: Fenghua Yu <fenghua.yu@intel.com>

Support memcpy() with enhanced rep movsb. On processors supporting enhanced
rep movsb, the alternative memcpy() function using enhanced rep movsb overrides the original function and the fast string
function.
