mpi: Avoid using freed pointer in mpi_lshift_limbs()
At the start of the function we assign 'a->d' to 'ap'. Then we use the RESIZE_IF_NEEDED macro on 'a' - this may free 'a->d' and replace it with newly allocaetd storage. In that case, we'll be operating on freed memory further down in the function when we index into 'ap'. Since we don't actually need 'ap' until after the use of the RESIZE_IF_NEEDED macro we can just delay the assignment to it until after we've potentially resized, thus avoiding the issue. While I was there anyway I also changed the integer variable 'n' to be const. It might as well be since we only assign to it once and use it as a constant, and then the compiler will tell us if we ever assign to it in the future.
