Distro: openSUSE Leap 42.1 (x86_64)

Packages used:

Standard (not changed) php.ini

The function gmp_export() gives wrong result for certain input: if the argument supplied is 0 or gmp_init(0) then gmp_export() outputs empty string.

Test script:
echo gmp_export(         0 );  // will output '', must be "\x0"
echo gmp_export(gmp_init(0));  // will output '', must be "\x0"

The result is intentional. 0 returns "" instead of "\x00" in the same way that 255 returns "\xff" and not "\x00\xff". Additionally, returning an empty string is consistent with the behavior of mpz_export(), which is spec'd to yield a zero count for a zero op.
