What we could do for the case in question is look at the maximum possible
value of c, derived from number-of-iteration analysis which should tell
us 8 because of the size of the tem array.

But I am not sure if a good library implementation shouldn't be always
preferable to a byte-wise copy.  We could, at least try to envision a way
to retain and use the knowledge that the size is at most 8 when expanding
the memcpy (with AVX we could use a masked store for example - quite fancy).
