Gabriele, I suggest that you use the mpz_tdiv_q_2exp function (or one
of the other "2exp" functions described in the "Integer Division"
section of the GMP manaul).  The "mpz" functions are MUCH easier to
use than the mpn functions, and if your integers are at all large
(more than 200 bits, as a guess) then mpz functions should be nearly
as fast as what mpn functions can provide.
