Yes, exactly. We have had a discussion about performance and at some point
it has been noted that the implementation of memset (or bzero) was important.
I have thus checked three versions of memset in order to understand if
indeed it impacts the performance. I have thus provided three versions of
memset (depending on BGL_MEMCPY1 and BGL_MEMCPY2). In that experiment I have
not noticed any impact on overall performance.
