Hello Peter,

I have applied your patch with very minor modifications.

However there are things that need to be done.

- ZM_sqr should be implemented as well.

- gmul or RgM_mul should be changed to call ZM_mul when appropriate.

- the tuning should depend on the size of the coefficients, I think.

- ideally the program src/test/tune.c should deal with the tuning.
This program deal with dependencies between tuning parameters.

- Most of the code is fairly generic, so maybe there could be a 
gen_matmul_sw function.

A note: do not use cgiv on a recursive type, it does not work.

Thanks a lot for your contribution to PARI!
