I am replaced the entire file. While the diff makes it look like some
stuff is not replaced, the standard copyright text is about the only
thing not completely changed. There are some blank lines and maybe a
couple of assembly language psuedo-ops that happen to match up by chance
but that is pure coincidence.

Nothing, but I didn't use any of the old code.

Yes, I am trying to have a common memset, memcpy, and maybe some other
routines between glibc, newlib, and android/bionic.
