Well, I think on most arches this __builtin_memset will actually expand to
real memset, since sizeof (bootstrap_map.l_info) is more than 64 * sizeof (void *),
ie. really big. Guess just ia-32 will expand it inline.
But, memset is local symbol in ld.so, do even calls to local functions have
to go through plt or got on mips?
