It would probably be better idea for majority of systems to just remove memcpy() and just replace it with memmove() which showed up with 0.17 %. Together, that would add up to 0.5 % at most, I suppose.

But we don't know if he ran his test on that computer. There's not enough information to tie the two together. It would help if Linus stated what CPU he used to run the test on.
