New x86 processors with AVX2 have wide memory bus and improved memory
operations with YMM registers. Use them to copy data in arraycopy stubs.
Most changes in stubGenerator_x86_64.cpp are renaming of copy_32_bytes
to copy_bytes since now the code copies 64 or 32 bytes per iteration.
Ran compiler regression tests with 64- and 32-bit VM.
