  ... yes, I know, we really need to improve also odd sizes...
Perhaps one could simply wrap the current function in code which appends
a zero limbs, calls the current code, and then right-shift the root by
half the limb bitcount?

(One would possibly need to suppress such code for operands below a
certain size, to avoid slowdowns.)
