This patch concerns cleaning up some ugly internal deprecations.
All JTREG BigInteger tests pass, and the serialized form has been unaltered as verified by bidirectional read-write testing between Java 7 and this version.
I would appreciate scrutiny of the arithmetic to make sure that I've made no silly errors. Also I would be interested in opinions as to whether the "volatile" keyword should in fact be used for the affected instance variables.
Thank you for your comments.
