--- Comment #4 from Aleksandar Kostovic <alexandar.kostovic at gmail.com> ---
SO i was reading how the sqrt function in pythons math module works and found
the alternative to it:

anynumber ** (1/2) = sqrt(anynumber)

basicly using exponent operator to devide number with 1/2 and you get sqrt of
that number.

checked with nmigen here:

it supports ** operator

so now i am not yet sure but i think this should be able to reduce the amount
of work needed to produce sqrt function.
Plan is to re-use get_a and get_b functions, add another func called sqrt in
the FSM, then add normalise funcs

what does everyone think?
