I added another shortcut for the mpn_invert_3by2 function:
Now the ABI=32 -asl16 issue should be healed.
The generic code (for mpn_invert_3by2) works only when "unsigned" is half
the size of "mp_limb_t" or has the same size... this means that large
types for mp_limb_t are not supported (e.g. no uint128_t). Smaller types
should be handled by some of the shortcuts.
Is the ABI=64 -asl32 case tested? It should work, and it should not even
be too slow.
