    This is ugly as hell. If we decided to add it it really needs a major
    cleanup, fitting into linux style and removal of unused functionality,
    the assembly bits needs to move to an asm/ header, etc.

    But to be honest I'd say anything that requires bigints shouldn't go into
    the kernel at all. Could someone explain why they want dsa support in
    kernelspace?
