I've been reading the mpf_div_ui() code and was surprised to find out
that even though tune was enabling preinv division, the code was NOT
using the mpn_preinv_divrem_1 function.
It doesn't, since a precomputed value is not available.
In mpn_get_str, the divisors are invariant, which allows us to
table preinverted divisors. That is what mpn_preinv_divrem_1 is
In other cases, mpn_divrem_1 computes the inverse on-the-fly (for
machines where that helps).
