ARM: 7670/1: fix the memset fix
Commit 455bd4c430b0 ("ARM: 7668/1: fix memset-related crashes caused by recent GCC (4.7.2) optimizations") attempted to fix a compliance issue with the memset return value. However the memset itself became broken by that patch for misaligned pointers. This fixes the above by branching over the entry code from the misaligned fixup code to avoid reloading the original pointer. Also, because the function entry alignment is wrong in the Thumb mode compilation, that fixup code is moved to the end. While at it, the entry instructions are slightly reworked to help dual issue pipelines.
