Re: CVS branch gmp-kernel-2-2-5

Hello PARI developers,

Thanks to Gerhart, ratlift is now implemented, and the gmp-kernel pass the

Please test, because I am not 100% sure my change is correct.
Please not that due to the impossibility to know a good
bound on the denominator of algebraic numbers, almost all 
function in PARI would still works (albeit more slowly) if ratlift
just always return -1, so using bestappr() is a better way to test
than make bench.

For the following comparaison, I have tweaked the kernel so that gmp
use the asm version of level0.h, so that odds are equal.

PARI kernel w/  asm: make bench: 2278
GMP  kernel w/  asm: make bench: 2368
GMP  kernel w/o asm: make bench: 3114

So it looks like the gmp kernel make heavy use of the level0 kernel.
It is probably due to the t_REAL functions that does not use gmp at all.
