It does look like I can replace the realloc calls:

gmp-impl.h defines:

1753 #define MPZ_REALLOC(z,n) (UNLIKELY ((n) > ALLOC(z))     \
1754                           ? (mp_ptr) _mpz_realloc(z,n)  \
1755                           : PTR(z))

which bypasses any replacement of __gmp_reallocate_func.

So, for example, in mpz/n_pow_ui, when it calls MPZ_REALLOC, I'm stuck
with the abort()

In fact, it appears that very few places in the code leverage
