I also looked at the source, but I must be missing something.

y = a A x + b y. I need (and have tried) the following which
seems to work: y = 1 A y + 0 y. Is that OK or will you run
into trouble somehow. Any pointers welcome. Thanks

first and second vector passed to dgemv would imply an alias
between the arguments, correct?

the above subsection 2.2.6, there are some obvious typos such as
