This all sounds like a very strong recommendation in favour of Rusty Russell's Maxim of API development: APIs should be
hard to misuse. memcpy, and apparently ALSA, are easy to misuse.
So implementing memcpy as memmove - which Linus says in the bugzilla threads is largely what the kernel does - sounds very sensible. memmove is much harder to misuse.
