We have now about half of hosts asking for HGCD_METHOD = 1 as for
HGCD_METHOD = 3. Itanic wants HGCD_METHOD 2, and so does beagle (Arm
a8), but the latter with a preference of just 0.05% (over method 3).
_METHOD 1 benefits from the special handling of q = 1 before invoking
DIV1. _METHOD 2 & 3 are optimised for small q, so implicitly repeats
the special handling of q = 1.
The speed difference between the preferred _METHOD and the 2nd best
_METHOD is not huge. In most cases it is < 10%. The greatest
difference is for the system mati at 19%.
