I don't think you need to andl %edx here - in __copy_user_nocache() %edx was
used to keep the remaining count that couldn't be handled with the size of
transfers we were doing in a given loop, so in .L_8b_nocache_copy_entry we
mask with 7 so we can use the remaining count in .L_4b_nocache_copy_entry
and/or .L_1b_cache_copy_entry.

In the PMEM case, though, the 8 byte loop is the end of the line, so we just
ignore any trailing data that isn't 8 byte aligned.

I'm not sure if it's important to use %ecx as your local loop variable - is
this a widely held convention? If not, you could just leave %ecx out of it
and use %edx directly in the 8 byte copy, i.e.:

/* Set 8-byte copy count and remainder */
.L_8b_pmem_copy_entry:
shrl $3,%edx
jnz .L_8b_pmem_copy_loop /* continue if count non-zero */
ret

/* Perform 8-byte pmem loop-copy */
.L_8b_pmem_copy_loop:
movq (%rsi),%r8
movnti %r8,(%rdi)
leaq 8(%rsi),%rsi
leaq 8(%rdi),%rdi
decl %edx
jnz .L_8b_pmem_copy_loop
ret
ENDPROC(__arch_memcpy_to_pmem)
