        Description

        Currently, the arraycopy API in access.hpp gets the src and dst oops, plus the src and dst addresses. In order to be most useful to garbage collectors, it should receive the src and dst oops together with the src and dst offsets instead, and let the Access API / GC calculate the src and dst addresses. This would also make the arraycopy API consistent with the other load+store APIs.
