  If adding the usual:
  #ifdef __cplusplus
  extern "C" {
  #ifdef __cplusplus
  at the beginning / end of longlong.h works, that seems like a good
  solution. gmp.h and gmp-impl.h already have it.
It is true that gmp-impl.h has that.  But gmp.h is a bit more choosy
with its placement of these things.

Perhaps this would work:

I am not actually super-fond of these mpn references in longlong.h.  I
would like to keep longlong.h non-specific to GMP.  A solution might be
to have a gmp-longlong.h wrapper with the stuff above, and always
include that instead of longlong.h directly, or grab longlong.h
unconditionally from gmp-impl.h (and the put the stuff above therein).
