    aarch64: Avoid hidden symbols for memcpy/memmove into static binaries
    The __GI_* symbol aliases for __memcpy_generic are unnecessary since
    they're never used.  Add them only for to avoid PLT.  Maybe
    some time in future we need to evaluate the relative cost of PLT vs
    gains from multiarch memcpy implementations and take a call on whether
    to drop this completely.
