	i don't understand.  then why do we have bcopy() macro in sys/systm.h?
	what is wrong in having both ovbcopy() and bcopy()?  if you remove
	bcopy macro right now, i can understand your tactics - but i would
	object to that as it will add lots of diffs in thirdparty kernel code.
	(the key to reduce thirdparty codebase synchronization labor is to
	try to reduce any diffs with the origin)
