Benchmarks, proving that you increased, or at least did not
injure performance with this change?
This isn't really relevant. There are only a couple of things that use it.
Namely the secure rpc key generators, the secure diffie hellman rpc key
exchange, and telnet SRA key exchange at startup. None of these use it
more than once (or once per connection).
telnet is already linked against libcrypto. It should be using
that for bignum support instead of libmp.
libmp is dead. libcrypto is the interface of choice to use these days,
or libgmp. Nothing in our tree uses libgmp.
We currently can do 600 1024 bit SSL connections a second, and
expect to double that via interface changes.
So performance _is_ relevent.
