I was looking at the asm source code for the k7 (gmp 4.2.1) mmx
lshift.asm, and found a bug
It is to note that the default (shipped with GMP 4.2.1) is
UNROLL_COUNT=32, so this bug is not seen under default conditions.
If you're talking about mpn/x86/k7/mmx, then I suppose the default
count is 16, also safe.
Instead of fixing the typo, I think I'll make the code handle up to
32x unrolling, for simplicity, which is already way too much. (And
perhaps lower the default to 8.)
