SubjectRE: [BUG mm] "fixed" i386 memcpy inlining buggy

Attached is inline ix86 memcpy() plus test code that tests its
corner-cases. The in-line code makes no jumps, but uses longword
copies, word copies and any spare byte copy. It works at all
offsets, doesn't require alignment but would work fastest if
both source and destination were longword aligned.
