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

Hello PARI developers,

At Karim request, I have merged the gmp-kernel branch to the main 

I have added a hack that allow gmp/mulrr to call mpn_mul for large
operand, similar to the use of quickmulii with the normal kernel.
The threshold is around 72 words, so it is better than karamul.

What need to be done now:
1) Implement config/get_gmp. This is a noop currently.

2) Fix the tune utility to allow to tune the gmp kernel:
Currently, since setmuli and setsqri are no-op, tune just loop

3) Tune...

PS: the CVS server suffer some strange kind of outage currently,
so I advise you to use cvs -z9, this make it work faster.
I do not know what is the problem...
