The 2nd version of this patch removes the made-up distribution and one based on a real
trace instead:

Add a new randomized memcpy test for copies up to 256 bytes.  The distribution of size and
alignment is based on a trace of SPEC2006 (other traces could be added in the future).
Instead of repeating the same copy over and over again like the existing tests, it times several
thousand different copies to more accurately estimate the overhead of branch prediction due to
the different sizes and alignments.

ChangeLog:
2017-02-09  Wilco Dijkstra  <wdijkstr@arm.com>

        * benchtests/Makefile (string-benchset): Add memcpy-random.
        * benchtests/bench-memcpy-random.c: New file.
