It's about warning when memcpy/memmove'ing lifetime-qualified objects in Objective-C ARC, e.g.,

  void f(__strong id dest[], __strong id source[], int n) {
  memcpy(dest, source, n * sizeof(__strong id));

should (and now does) produce:

t.m:5:3: warning: destination for this '__builtin___memcpy_chk' call is a
      pointer to lifetime-qualified type '__strong id' [-Wnon-pod-memaccess]
  memcpy(dest, source, n * sizeof(__strong id));
t.m:5:10: note: instantiated from:
  memcpy(dest, source, n * sizeof(__strong id));
t.m:5:3: note: explicitly cast the pointer to silence this warning

The actual warning came in with ARC yesterday, but it didn't work properly without r133173.
