request for comments on FD_ZERO use of bzero

Hi again. :)

I was tracking down warnings in RTEMS and noticed that this was the

./include/sys/types.h:#  define	FD_ZERO(p)	bzero((caddr_t)(p), sizeof
./sys/rtems/sys/types.h:#define FD_ZERO(p)  bzero((caddr_t)(p), sizeof

bzero is not prototyped when __STRICT_ANSI__ is defined so use of 
FD_ZERO will always generate a warning when in strict ANSI mode.

I think changing the bzero's to memset will fix this.

Comments before I change it?
