Log Message:
Changes 5.1.0:

* When reading a C++ number (like mpz_class) in an istream reaches the end
  of the stream, the eofbit is now set.

* The result sign of mpz_rootrem's remainder is now always correct.
* The mpz_remove function now handles negative divisors.
* Contains all fixes from release 5.0.5.

* The n-factorial and n-over-k functions have been reimplemented for great
  speedups for small and large operands.
* New subquadratic algorithm for the Kronecker/Jacobi/Legendre symbol.
* Major speedup for ARM, in particular ARM Cortex-A9 and A15, thanks to broad
  assembly support.
* Significant speedup or POWER6 and POWER7 thanks to improved assembly.
* The performance under M$ Windows' 64-bit ABI has been greatly improved
  thanks to complete assembly support.
* Minor speed improvements of many functions and for many platforms.

* Many new CPUs recognised.
* New functions for multi-factorials, and primorial: mpz_2fac_ui,
  mpz_mfac_uiui and mpz_primorial_ui.
* The mpz_powm_sec function now uses side-channel silent division for
  converting into Montgomery residues.
* The fat binary mechanism is now more robust in its CPU recognition.

* Inclusion of assembly code is now controlled by the configure options
  --enable-assembly and --disable-assembly.  The "none" CPU targets is gone.
* In C++, the conversions mpq_class->mpz_class, mpf_class->mpz_class and
  mpf_class->mpq_class are now explicit.
* Includes "mini-gmp", a small, portable, but less efficient, implementation
  of a subset of GMP's mpn and mpz interfaces. Used in GMP bootstrap, but it
  can also be bundled with applications as a fallback when the real GMP
  library is unavailable.
* The ABIs under AIX are no longer called aix32 and aix64, but mode64 and 32.
  This is more consistent with other powerpc systems.
* The coverage of the testsuite has been improved, using the lcov tool.  See
* It is now possible to compile GMP using a C++ compiler.
* K&R C compilers are no longer supported.
* The BSD MP compatibility functions have been removed.
