Oh my word.  So glibc 2.13 breaks random binaries that happened to
incorrectly use memcpy() instead of memmove()?  What's wrong with the
glibc developers (and Ulrich Drepper in particular)?

I'm with Linus on this: let's just revert to the old behaviour.  A
tiny amount of clock cycles saved isn't worth the instability.


P.S.  I tried rebuilding glibc myself locally, but gcc also segfaults
in the process :-(
