Looks good. On second thought it may not be appropriate to modify
gsl_multifit_linear for this problem. There does happen to be a
unique solution for your problem, however in general if you try to
solve X c = y, where X is singular then there could be infinitely many
solutions even if y = 0, so it may not be worth it to add in a special
case like this.
