Optimize __memset_chk, __memcpy_chk.
This change creates assembler versions of __memcpy_chk/__memset_chk
that is implemented in the memcpy/memset assembler code. This change
avoids an extra call to memcpy/memset, instead allowing a simple fall
through to occur from the chk code into the body of the real
- Ran the libc_test on __memcpy_chk/__memset_chk on all nexus devices.
- Wrote a small test executable that has three calls to __memcpy_chk and
three calls to __memset_chk. First call dest_len is length + 1. Second
call dest_len is length. Third call dest_len is length - 1.
Verified that the first two calls pass, and the third fails. Examined
the logcat output on all nexus devices to verify that the fortify
error message was sent properly.
- I benchmarked the new __memcpy_chk and __memset_chk on all systems. For
__memcpy_chk and large copies, the savings is relatively small (about 1%).
For small copies, the savings is large on cortex-a15/krait devices
(between 5% to 30%).
For cortex-a9 and small copies, the speed up is present, but relatively
small (about 3% to 5%).
For __memset_chk and large copies, the savings is also small (about 1%).
However, all processors show larger speed-ups on small copies (about 30% to
