gmp_powm() crashes with a floating point exception when the third parameter, the modulo, is called with a "0". This seems to be a problem with GMP itself. I am using GMP 4.1.2. PHP could, however, check to see if this parameter is 0, and call mpz_pow() instead.

Reproduce code:
    $a = gmp_powm("2", "31", "0");

Expected result:
$a = 2147483648;

Actual result:
Program terminated with signal 8, Arithmetic exception.
