Or I can just find it by commenting stuff out and seeing when the
_memset ref goes away. It appears to be this loop that's causing it, in
afs_RebuildDynroot lines 378/379:

    for (i = 0; i < NHASHENT; i++)
            dirHeader->hashTable[i] = 0;

which makes sense; that's pretty easily optimizable into a memset.

I'll get a simpler demonstration together to submit to Oracle.
