The converter improvement is significant, roughly 40% reduction on
Linux perf numbers, but keep in mind that x86 integer converter load
is not a major concern for most applications.

The impetus for the converter change was applications running at high
sample rates (e.g. 100+ Msps), where small performance improvements
scale to large ones. Also, simply by principle, integer conversion
should not be slower than floating point conversion.
