Cavium copyright assignment myself but my understanding is that it is
a general one that does not restrict contributions to be from just
a list of specific people.

Thanks for the clarification Steve.  That should be sufficient assuming that Anton's work is owned by Cavium.

As for the patch itself, I'll leave it to you for a deeper review since you're the better judge for tx2 performance.  It would still be nice to see the results from memcpy-walk and not just memcpy-large, assuming that's what Anton tested with.

The patch needs a ChangeLog too.

Thanks,
Siddhesh
