Subject: [PATCH] x86/purgatory: Do not use __builtin_memcpy and
 __builtin_memset

Implementing memcpy and memset in terms of __builtin_memcpy and
__builtin_memset is problematic.

GCC at -O2 will replace calls to the builtins with calls to memcpy and
memset (but will generate an inline implementation at -Os).  Clang will
replace the builtins with these calls regardless of optimization level.
$ llvm-objdump -dr arch/x86/purgatory/string.o | tail

0000000000000339 memcpy:
     339: 48 b8 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 movabsq $0, %rax
                000000000000033b:  R_X86_64_64  memcpy
     343: ff e0                         jmpq    *%rax

0000000000000345 memset:
     345: 48 b8 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 movabsq $0, %rax
                0000000000000347:  R_X86_64_64  memset
     34f: ff e0

Such code results in infinite recursion at runtime. This is observed
when doing kexec.

Instead, reuse an implementation from arch/x86/boot/compressed/string.c.
This requires to implement a stub function for warn(). Also, Clang may
lower memcmp's that compare against 0 to bcmp's, so add a small definition,
too. See also: commit 5f074f3e192f ("lib/string.c: implement a basic bcmp")
