Yes, memcpy(9) and bcopy(9) manual pages weren't before 1.6,
but the section 3 manpages apply nicely (the interface
is the same). Also, if you'd do 'grep memcpy sys/kern/*',
you'd note many usages there. Actually, for 1.5.*, it was mix
of memcpy() and bcopy(); the code was cleaned up to only
use memcpy() before 1.6.
actually, doesn't kernel bcopy() not work for overlapping
regions of memory, by design? they are not exactly the same.
