* Set up the phase limits for the progress report. We do this
* by passing minus the phase number.
*
* For prime generation: our initial filter finds things
* coprime to everything below 2^16. Computing the product of
* (p-1)/p for all prime p below 2^16 gives about 20.33; so
* among B-bit integers, one in every 20.33 will get through
* the initial filter to be a candidate prime.
*
* Meanwhile, we are searching for primes in the region of 2^B;
* since pi(x) ~ x/log(x), when x is in the region of 2^B, the
* prime density will be d/dx pi(x) ~ 1/log(B), i.e. about
* 1/0.6931B. So the chance of any given candidate being prime
* is 20.33/0.6931B, which is roughly 29.34 divided by B.
*
* So now we have this probability P, we're looking at an
* exponential distribution with parameter P: we will manage in
* one attempt with probability P, in two with probability
* P(1-P), in three with probability P(1-P)^2, etc. The
* probability that we have still not managed to find a prime
* after N attempts is (1-P)^N.
*
* We therefore inform the progress indicator of the number B
* (29.34/B), so that it knows how much to increment by each
* time. We do this in 16-bit fixed point, so 29.34 becomes
* 0x1D.57C4.
