Subject[Q] Why is this?
In trying to compile an IDEA encryption routine for the kernel, I'm
getting the following error:

ld -m elf_i386 -Ttext 0x100000 -e stext arch/i386/kernel/head.o init/main.o init/version.o \
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o arch/i386/mm/mm.o kernel/kernel.o mm/mm.o fs/fs.o ipc/ipc.o net/network.a \

drivers/block/block.a(idea.o): In function `idea_encrypt_block':

idea.o(.text+0x4a8): undefined reference to `memcpy'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1
elasped 0:45.57 87.3%

But many other files in drivers/block use memcpy. In fact, loop.c does
itself. So why can't it find it for my file?

loop.c: memcpy(loop_buf, raw_buf, size);
loop.c: memcpy(raw_buf, loop_buf, size);
