I did expect this for GMP 5.0.0, however I was a bit disappointed that 
no equivalent interface was provided.  As things stand, it is impossible 
to do a fast exact division using mpn public functions only.  I can of 
course use __gmpn_divexact directly, but I'd rather avoid that.

Would it be possible to make mpn_divexact (and maybe mpn_divexact_1) 
public in a future release?
