I have a sis620 video card in a pcchips 748MR main board. XFree86 4.0.1 
server for sis displays fonts abnormally, and easily drives monitor into 
dead state. The console message complain "unresolved symbol memcpy in 
module sis_drv.o". I found that only sis_drv.o has symbol "memcpy", other 
drivers come with "xf86memcpy". 

Download the XFree86 4.0.1 from ftp.xfree86.org for glibc21, it works 
perfectly. The sis_drv.o doesn't have symbol "memcpy". 

Looking to the xfree86 source, I found the symbol "memcpy" comes from 
init3.o in the sis driver directory, using "nm", I found "memcpy" is the 
last symbol, and is after "gcc_compiled". The init3.c doesn't include any 
call to "memcpy". So the symbol is generated by the compiler.

I also noticed the XFree86 4.0.2 downloaded from xfree86.org has same 
problem as the xserver comes with redhat-7.0.

It seems the problem is caused by some mis-compilation.

This is fixed in Rawhide XFree86-4.0.2-11, and will appear shortly.
