No, I was asking if you meant the whole port-in-progress or if you were only
asking about said functions; at that point I had not checked.

At present, I can tell you what the git log says:
-memcpy.c was last touched in August last year implementing a portable
optimized memcpy.
-abs.c has not changed in the 3 years of git history
-sprintf.c (I assume that's what you mean by 'sprint'?) has not been 
touched since 2012.

...all of which are before AArch64 porting.

Is the relevant code in 'rebase-1.0'?
