49d287e33da718f85f58729efc44a375700783f7 02-Jun-2018 mjg <mjg@FreeBSD.org> Use __builtin for various mem* and b* (e.g. bzero) routines.

Some of the routines were using artificially limited builtin already,
drop the explicit limit.

The use of builtins allows quite often allows the compiler to elide the call
or most zeroing to begin with. For instance, if the target object is 32 bytes
in size and gets zeroed + has 16 bytes initialized, the compiler can just
add code to zero out the rest.

Note not all the primites have asm variants and some of the existing ones
are not optimized. Maintaines are strongly encourage to take a look
(regardless of this change).
4736ccfd9c3411d50371d7f21f9450a47c19047e 20-Nov-2017 pfg <pfg@FreeBSD.org> sys: further adoption of SPDX licensing ID tags.

Mainly focus on files that use BSD 3-Clause license.

The Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) group provides a specification
to make it easier for automated tools to detect and summarize well known
opensource licenses. We are gradually adopting the specification, noting
that the tags are considered only advisory and do not, in any way,
superceed or replace the license texts.

Special thanks to Wind River for providing access to "The Duke of
Highlander" tool: an older (2014) run over FreeBSD tree was useful as a
starting point.
7e6cabd06e6caa6a02eeb86308dc0cb3f27e10da 28-Feb-2017 imp <imp@FreeBSD.org> Renumber copyright clause 4

Renumber cluase 4 to 3, per what everybody else did when BSD granted
them permission to remove clause 3. My insistance on keeping the same
numbering for legal reasons is too pedantic, so give up on that point.

^/user/gjb/hacking since this is likely to be merged to head/ soon.

d31fa364752ed3b16d83a9cfa2866990824b3eb5 23-Sep-2008 obrien <obrien@FreeBSD.org> The kernel implemented 'memcmp' is an alias for 'bcmp'. However, memcmp
and bcmp are not the same thing. 'man bcmp' states that the return is
"non-zero" if the two byte strings are not identical. Where as,
'man memcmp' states that the return is the "difference between the
first two differing bytes (treated as unsigned char values" if the
two byte strings are not identical.

So provide a proper memcmp(9), but it is a C implementation not a tuned
assembly implementation. Therefore bcmp(9) should be preferred over memcmp(9).
