Thinking about this a bit more, I just realized that there is a little bit
of memory involved: It comes in with lowest_ceiling: GF_low is supposed to
apply at the depth of the deepest deco stop (and not at the max_depth as
it was in my first version of deco.c). For the linear interpolation of
gradient factors we need to memorize this value.
And I would say this this depth should have no influence on the no flight
time. This is another reason to use for that calculation GF_high=GF_low =
(either 100% for plain vanilla Buehlmann or some reasonable GF_high like
80% or so). Having both equal makes, as I said earlier, the gradient
factor independent of the ambient pressure.
