Yes, they've finally thrown a small amount of logic at it.
Probably a cache line sized barrel shifter.
'rep movsb' has also been optimised for short transfers (but is
slower for longer ones).

At least the zero length 'rep movsb' at the end of the inlined
memcpy will not take 40+ clocks on those cpus.
