Description
This code uses the GrossKoblitz formula to compute Gauss sums as products of padic Gamma functions. The result is an element of a totally ramified extension of Q_p. This can be much faster than computing gauss sums in the naive way.

I am happy to see this available; this will come handy for some code I am working on right now.
But the documentation is not properly formatted. I am going now to make a quick reviewer commit to fix that.

I moved the imports inside the function, and documentation builds now.

Silly question maybe, but are we completely sure of the correctness of the code here ? I am asking because I have some problems in #23671 that could possibly come from here.

Replying to chapoton:

There is a code snippet on #23671 that checks the padic computation against the computation by roots of unity. Perhaps that could be added as a doctest, but not on this ticket since it's already closed.
