Subject: Re:  Bad optimization in -O3 sometimes

I am not talking about a library solution at all. I am talking about a  
solution inside the compiler. Gcc will optimize memcpy; how much for  
MIPS is a good question. Try it out and see. Oh if you are using  
scei's gcc you really should be reporting issues to them.
