That's more complicated. :-)
We'd want several functions...
Function: bdiv_qr_1_pi1 alias divexact_1
Divisor size = 1, inverse size = 1. We have this function in C and
assembly, but we call it mpn_divexact_1 for historical reasons.
Divisor size = 1, inverse size = 2. This will allow more micro-
parallelism than bdiv_qr_1_pi1 and should be faster for dividends of
more than a few limbs.
If the divisor is invariant over several dividends, bdiv_qr_1_pi2 should
beat bdiv_qr_1_pi1 always.
We have this function (see https://gmplib.org/devel/asm.html) but it
seems no code is in the repo just yet. Not even the C code is there.
Similar situation here. The _pi2 variant will be somewhat faster for
almost every CPU. The inversion computation will be higher and push up
the break-even point when the divisor is not invariant.
(We might want two loop variants for each of these functions, one which
shifts the dividend on-the-fly and one which does not...)
