memset is called all over the place. I don't like hardcoding special
options for particular files based on calls to memset, and especially not
based on what some particular compiler version happens to do with a
particular call. Why doesn't the call to libc_hidden_builtin_proto
(memset) in include/string.h suffice? Can you devise some set of
declarations / toplevel asms to put in a header that will ensure memset
calls go via a hidden alias (ideally with the compiler knowing it's
hidden, not just the assembler / linker, so the compiler can do any
optimizations based on it being an intra-library call)?
