Given an element in a finite extension of Qp and a positive integer n, return the nth root of the element.

See #12567.


Implemented square roots and nth roots for elements in Qp. Only returns nth root of an element in Qp if the nth root lies in Qp.


Still needs to be editted for syntax conventions, error messages, examples, and documentation. Also requires optimization and improved code.

Code should eventually be replaced by superior FLINT code by Sebastian Pancratz; requires FLINT 2 to be incorporated into Sage. See #12173.
