Hi,

Similar to previous patches, this patch improves strcpy performance by using strlen+memcpy. This is
significantly faster than a simple byte-loop, on bench-strcpy speedup is > 2x.

ChangeLog:
2014-09-23  Wilco Dijkstra  <wdijkstr@arm.com>

	* string/strcpy.c (strcpy):
	Improve performance by using strlen and memcpy.
