ISO/IEC 9899:2011 ("C 11") defines a memset_s function for that.
It's a lot like memset(3), but it takes an extra argument, does some
sanity checks on the arguments, and it's guaranteed not to be
optimised away by the compiler.

Frankly, I think we should first discuss whether we want to implement
the *_s crap first or not.

Some of the *_s functions seem sensible, and some don't. I do not propose to add them all.
