I noticed that. Could be a bit confusing if different values are used in
C and asm files, but no real problem, I hope.

And defining a new, more local, default in the assembly file using a
particular threshold makes some sense.

For most architectures, there's a top-level gmp-mparam.h,
mpn/<arch>/gmp-mparam.h, but not for powerpc64. Maybe it should have
one? Or are those files obsolete? E.g, x86_64/gmp-mparam.h carries a

but then there are more recent x86_64/k8/gmp-mparam.h and
