Yes, there is a manual that comes with GMP.  Did you read it?

I would be very surprised if anybody manages to get decent performance
for GMP on a GPU, except possibly for operands of millions of digits.
This has been discussed several times in the past, please see the mail
list archives.

It might be possible to get some success from a "vertical" approach,
i.e., bignum SIMD.  I am not sure how many applications would benefit
from such an API.
