Sorry for not responding sooner but can you tell me what version of the assembler you are using to compile newlib? It looks like the assembler does not understand the 64 bit load and store instructions.
You can probably work around this by unsetting USE_DOUBLE in the memcpy.S source file but I would like to understand why your assembler is not accepting the sd/ld instructions.
