Maybe tail-call?

When up[0] == 0 but U is not zero and we can not return the result... 
That's an unlikely case, but it means that one of the operands gets much 
smaller than the other. Maybe a special strategy can be used in this 
case? Maybe a division, maybe a 2-adic division, or maybe simply a loop 
that knows that U will be smaller until also V will be one (some) limb 

...and finally tail-call to the smaller fixed-size asm function?
