Dear developers,

Below we at the Julia team would love to see the following patch upstreamed:


Currently GMP aborts which sends SIGBART and forcibly aborts Julia or any linked program. With the above patch,  GMP will instead throw a  __GMP_ALLOC_OVERFLOW_FUNC
Instead of forcibly aborting

Thanks for your consideration.
