	BN_RECP_CTX *BN_RECP_CTX_new(void);
	void BN_RECP_CTX_init(BN_RECP_CTX *recp);
	void BN_RECP_CTX_free(BN_RECP_CTX *recp);

	int BN_RECP_CTX_set(BN_RECP_CTX *recp, const BIGNUM *m, BN_CTX *ctx);

	int BN_div_recp(BIGNUM *dv, BIGNUM *rem, BIGNUM *a, BN_RECP_CTX *recp,
	       BN_CTX *ctx);

	int BN_mod_mul_reciprocal(BIGNUM *r, BIGNUM *a, BIGNUM *b,
	       BN_RECP_CTX *recp, BN_CTX *ctx);

       BN_mod_mul_reciprocal() can be used to perform an efficient
       BN_mod_mul(3) operation when the operation will be performed repeatedly
       with the same modulus. It computes r=(a*b)%m using recp=1/m, which is
       set as described below.	ctx is a previously allocated BN_CTX used for
       temporary variables.

       BN_RECP_CTX_new() allocates and initializes a BN_RECP structure.
       BN_RECP_CTX_init() initializes an existing uninitialized BN_RECP.

       BN_RECP_CTX_free() frees the components of the BN_RECP, and, if it was
       created by BN_RECP_CTX_new(), also the structure itself.

       BN_RECP_CTX_set() stores m in recp and sets it up for computing 1/m and
       shifting it left by BN_num_bits(m)+1 to make it an integer. The result
       and the number of bits it was shifted left will later be stored in

       BN_div_recp() divides a by m using recp. It places the quotient in dv
       and the remainder in rem.

       The BN_RECP_CTX structure is defined as follows:

	typedef struct bn_recp_ctx_st
	       BIGNUM N;       /* the divisor */
	       BIGNUM Nr;      /* the reciprocal */
	       int num_bits;
	       int shift;
	       int flags;
	       } BN_RECP_CTX;

       It cannot be shared between threads.

       BN_RECP_CTX_new() returns the newly allocated BN_RECP_CTX, and NULL on

       BN_RECP_CTX_init() and BN_RECP_CTX_free() have no return values.

       For the other functions, 1 is returned for success, 0 on error.	The
       error codes can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).

       bn(3), ERR_get_error(3), BN_add(3), BN_CTX_new(3)

       BN_RECP_CTX was added in SSLeay 0.9.0. Before that, the function
       BN_reciprocal() was used instead, and the BN_mod_mul_reciprocal() argu‐
       ments were different.
