That wouldn't hurt, true. I don't think the offset part would
actually be used without the expression.

Hmm. The size is the size of *this* access. The only time they
wouldn't already be identical is if this is a BLKmode copy. Can
we manage to unify two known-but-different-size memcpy's? Maybe,
if the constraint on the immediate length operand forces it into
So, yes, I think you're right, max for size.
