Evgeniya Maenkova closed HARMONY-3089.

Thanks, Alexey: works fine.

>             Project: Harmony

> Several performance related proposals for java.math:
> 1) move Conversion.string2BigInteger(val, radix) to BigInteger. This method is called
only from BigInteger(String, int) . So if we move this into BigInteger redudant object will
not be created.
> 2) precision computation is pretty difficult, so (a) in inplaceRound we could add additional
check to use approx precision; (b) if BigDecimal is constructed from char[] we could compute
precision pretty cheaply.
> 3) as you know, if we work with small BigDecimals we use longs. Looks like this feature
is missed in  BigDecimal(char[], int, int). So let's keep this idea there also.
> 4) very small: let's use StringBuilder instead of StringBuffer in BigDecimal(char[] in,
int offset, int len).
> We don't need such kind of synchronization there so let's use StringBuilder.
> From spec(StringBuffer): "As of release JDK 5, this class has been supplemented with
an equivalent class designed for use by a single thread, StringBuilder. The StringBuilder
class should generally be used in preference to this one, as it supports all of the same operations
but it is faster, as it performs no synchronization.
