SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC] x86:Improve memset with general 64bit instruction
From
Andi,

The below is compared result on older machine(cpu info is attached):
That shows new code get better performance up to 1.6x.

Bytes: ORG_TIME: NEW_TIME: ORG vs NEW:
7 0.87 0.76 1.14
16 0.99 0.68 1.45
18 1.07 0.77 1.38
21 1.09 0.78 1.39
25 1.11 0.77 1.44
30 1.12 0.73 1.53
36 1.15 0.75 1.53
38 1.12 0.75 1.49
62 1.18 0.77 1.53
75 1.25 0.79 1.58
85 1.28 0.80 1.60
120 1.33 0.82 1.62
193 1.45 0.88 1.64
245 1.48 0.96 1.54
256 1.45 0.90 1.61
356 1.61 1.02 1.57
601 1.78 1.22 1.45
958 2.04 1.47 1.38
1024 2.07 1.48 1.39
2048 2.80 2.21 1.26

Thanks
Ling
