Stub isolation series has __efistub_memcpy, not __efistub___memcpy
(two additional '_').
The thing is, KASAN provides own implementation of memcpy() which
checks memory before access.
The original 'memcpy()' becomes __memcpy(), so we could still use it.
In code that not instrumented by KASAN (like the EFI stub) we replace
KASAN's memcpy() with the original __mempcy():
#define memcpy() __memcpy()
So with CONFIG_KASAN=y the EFI stub uses __memcpy, thus we need to
create the __efistub___memcpy alias.
