Feature #12447: Integer#digits for extracting digits of place-value notation in any base
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12447

----------------------------------------
I sometimes want to extract digits of place-value notation of integer numbers.
One typical use case is calculating checksum digit.
I found some code extracting digits by the way like `int.to_s.chars.map(&:to_i)`.

- https://github.com/joeljunstrom/ruby_luhn/blob/master/lib/luhn.rb#L43
- https://github.com/elitwin/check_digit/blob/master/lib/check_digit/damm.rb#L28
- https://github.com/elitwin/check_digit/blob/master/lib/check_digit/luhn.rb#L14
- https://github.com/elitwin/check_digit/blob/master/lib/check_digit/verhoeff.rb#L42

Introducing Integer#digits can reduce needless string allocation in such cases.

The patch was pushed into the repository in github.
