From: Anton Ivanov <anton.ivanov@cambridgegreys.com>

The UML kernel runs as a normal userspace process and can use most
of glibc string.h functionality instead of built-ins. At present,
when using built-ins, it is also limited to their unoptimized
versions, because it does not have the runtime code patching present
on x86 via apply_alternatives()

Allowing the use of glibc for memcpy, memmove, etc provides 1-5%
boost on common file io as measured by cat and dd. The size of
the linux executable is also reduced by ~10KBytes.

It is possible to turn this on/off via the kernel configuration.

+	  UML can use the kernel built in memcpy, memmove, etc functions
+	  or use the glibc equivalents instead.
+	  The glibc equivalents are slightly faster and will result in a
