From: Matthew Wilcox <mawilcox@microsoft.com>

memset16(), memset32() and memset64() are like memset(), but allow the
caller to fill the destination with a multibyte pattern.  memset_l()
and memset_p() allow the caller to use unsigned long and pointer
values respectively.  memset64() is currently only available on 64-bit
architectures.
