My felling would be that this change makes it more solid.

My understanding is that when you do *t = *s, the compiler can use
whatever way it wants to do the copy.
When you do memcpy(), you ensure it will do it that way and not another
way, don't you ?

My problem is that when using *t = *s, the function set_cur_cpu_spec()
always calls memcpy(), not taking into account the following define
which is in arch/powerpc/include/asm/string.h (other arches do the same):

#if defined(CONFIG_KASAN) && !defined(__SANITIZE_ADDRESS__)
/*
* For files that are not instrumented (e.g. mm/slub.c) we
* should use not instrumented version of mem* functions.
*/
#define memcpy(dst, src, len) __memcpy(dst, src, len)
#define memmove(dst, src, len) __memmove(dst, src, len)
#define memset(s, c, n) __memset(s, c, n)
#endif

void __init set_cur_cpu_spec(struct cpu_spec *s)
{
struct cpu_spec *t = &the_cpu_spec;

t = PTRRELOC(t);
*t = *s;

*PTRRELOC(&cur_cpu_spec) = &the_cpu_spec;
}

When replacing *t = *s by memcpy(t, s, sizeof(*t)), GCC replace it by
__memcpy() as expected.

No it doesn't and to be honest I can't see how it would. My
understanding is that it could be even worse because it would mean
adding calls to memcpy() also in all trivial places where GCC does the
copy itself by default.

Do you see any alternative ?
