[PATCH v2] kernel: debug: memcpy overlaped, use memmove instead ofmemcpy.

From: Chen Gang
Date: Thu May 16 2013 - 07:33:59 EST

For memcpy(), src and dest are overlaped: for default implementaion or
some architectures, it is OK, but we can not be sure that it is OK for
all platforms, and in this condition, the performance are not quite

So let memmove instead of memcpy.
