[PATCH] Don't use __warn_memset_zero_len for gcc-5.0 or newer


gcc now warns when the arguments to memset may have been accidentally
transposed (i.e. length set to zero instead of the byte), so we don't
need that bit of the code in glibc headers anymore.

Tested on x86_64.  Coe generated by gcc 4.8 is identical with or
without the patch.  I also tested gcc master, which does not result in
any new failures.  It does fail quite a few FORTIFY_SOURCE tests, but
those failures are not due to this patch.  I'll look at them deeper.
OK to commit this?


	* string/bits/string3.h (__warn_memset_zero_len): Don't
	declare for gcc newer than 5.0.
	(memset): Don't test for zero-length __LEN for gcc newer than
