The patch doesn't seem quite right. Apart from BYTES_PER_MP_LIMB, the rest 
should be handled automatically, no? On the other hand, it is missing all 
the tuning info (see the same file in other directories). But if you 
aren't adding any asm file, I am not sure creating a directory is 
necessary. Note also that the patch references a discussion where noone 
answered Torbjorn's question:

Does the build work with --disable-assembly?
