This will clash with a fix I did to add a "memory" clobber
for the traditional implementation, see

I think the smallest code would be the original "rep insb" etc, which
should be smaller than a function call, unlike the loop. Then again,
there is a rather small number of affected device drivers, almost all
of them for ancient hardware that you won't even build in a 64-bit
x86 kernel, see the list below. The only user I found that is actually
still relevant is drivers/tty/hvc/hvc_xen.c, which uses it for the early
console.
