math/big: improve threshold calibration #25580
For multiplication and squaring we use different algorithms depending on the input length. We currently have 3 threshold constants to decide which algorithm to use. These are calibrated with TestCalibrate.
This calibration takes multiple minutes to run and the outcome doesn't seem to be that reliable. Last noticed in cl 105075.
