I was trying to check it. With gcc-11 the assembly code generated is
not using memset, but using __memset.
But with gcc-12, I can see the assembly code is using memset. One
example from the assembly:

call_prom:
        .quad   .call_prom,.TOC.@...base,0
        .previous
        .size   call_prom,24
        .type   .call_prom,@function
.call_prom:

        std 30,-16(1)    #,
        std 31,-8(1)     #,

        mr 31,4          # nargs, tmp167
        mr 30,5          # tmp168, nret
 # arch/powerpc/kernel/prom_init.c:396:         struct prom_args args;
