Issue #13078 has been updated by Nobuyoshi Nakada.


I thought the reduction would be slower, but actually not significant.

```
$ ruby -rbenchmark -e 'a = 3; b = -0x20_0000_0000_0001; n=10_000_000; Benchmark.bm(13) {|x|x.report("Integer#fdiv"){n.times{a.fdiv(b)}}; x.report("Rational#to_f"){n.times{Rational(a, b).to_f}}}'
                    user     system      total        real
Integer#fdiv    3.420000   0.000000   3.420000 (  3.446264)
Rational#to_f   3.450000   0.010000   3.460000 (  3.465592)
```

----------------------------------------
Bug #13078: with Integer a and b, a.fdiv(b) sometimes inaccurate than Rational(a, b).to_f

For example,

~~~
a = 3
b = 0x20_0000_0000_0001
p a.fdiv(b)
p Rational(a, b).to_f

I'm hacking to solve this problem, see diff view.
