Subject: [PATCH v2 2/3] lib/string: optimized memmove
Date: Fri,  2 Jul 2021 14:31:52 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210702123153.14093-3-mcroce@linux.microsoft.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210702123153.14093-1-mcroce@linux.microsoft.com>

From: Matteo Croce <mcroce@microsoft.com>

When the destination buffer is before the source one, or when the
buffers doesn't overlap, it's safe to use memcpy() instead, which is
optimized to use a bigger data size possible.

This "optimization" only covers a common case. In future, proper code
which does the same thing as memcpy() does but backwards can be done.
