Removing some workarounds for big integers

now that Emacs has big integers, would it make sense to remove some of
the workarounds for lack of big integer support that are still present?
Specifically, the ‘make_fixnum_or_float’ and ‘INTEGER_TO_CONS’ macros.
A replacement that would generate a fixnum or bignum depending on the
input value seems strictly superior.  (It would require a bit more
memory, but I don’t think memory pressure is an issue here.)
