Since Derek pointed out to me that these things are often provided
as macros in asm/string.h, I went and looked at the s390 code in 2.2.17.

asm-s390/string.h defines __HAVE_ARCH_* for 8 symbols:

memchr, strcpy, strlen, and strcat are in include/asm-s390/string.h
memset, strcmp, and strncpy are in assembly files in arch/s390/lib/

As it turns out, memcpy is defined in neither of those places, despite
the fact that __HAVE_ARCH_MEMCPY is defined.  So, you are going to lose
with that kernel.  The simplest solution is probably to edit
include/asm-s390/string.h and change




and rebuild the kernel.

If you don't want to rebuild, you could instead edit that same file
and add

#define memcpy(a,b,c) bcopy(b,a,c)

then rebuild OpenAFS.

Good luck...
