Don't use memcpy when source and dest. buffers may overlap

git-index-pack can call memcpy with overlapping source and destination
buffers. The patch below makes it use memmove instead.

If you want to demonstrate a failure, add the following two lines

+ if (input_offset < input_len)
+ abort ();

before the existing memcpy call (shown in the patch below),
and then run this:

(cd t; sh ./t5500-fetch-pack.sh)
