> The test suite can be run directly from the source tree. The test suite includes timing information for individual tests and for the the entire test. Sample invocation:

I extracted the slowest test (test_polyroots_legendre) and put it in a loop of 5 iterations: see attached I ran this benchmark on Linux with 4 isolated CPU (/sys/devices/system/cpu/isolated=2-3,6-7).

On such setup, the benchmark looks stable. Example:

Run #1/5: 12.28 sec
Run #2/5: 12.27 sec
Run #3/5: 12.29 sec
Run #4/5: 12.28 sec
Run #5/5: 12.30 sec

test_polyroots_legendre (min of 5 runs):

* Original: 12.51 sec
* fastint5_4.patch: (min of 5 runs): 12.27 sec (-1.9%)
* fastint6.patch: 12.21 sec (-2.4%)

I ran tests without GMP, to stress the Python int type.

I guess that the benchmark is dominated by CPU time spent on computing operations on large Python int, not by the time spent in ceval.c. So the speedup is low (2%). Such use case doesn't seem to benefit of micro optimization discussed in this issue.

mpmath is an arbitrary-precision floating-point arithmetic using Python int (or GMP if available).
