LUCENE-5398: remove invalid byte cast in NormValueSource, since TFIDFSimilarity now allows
for norms larger than one byte

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: core/query/scoring
>    Affects Versions: 4.6
>         Environment: Ubuntu 12.04
>            Reporter: Peng Cheng
>            Priority: Trivial
>             Fix For: 5.0, 4.7

>   Original Estimate: 1h
>  Remaining Estimate: 1h
> Previous Lucene implementation store field norms of all documents in memory, float values
are therefore encoded into byte to minimize memory consumption.
> Recent release no longer have this constraint (see LUCENE-5078, and discussion at,
users are encouraged to implement their own encodeNormValue() to encode them into/decode from
any type including int, byte and long, to fulfil their request for precision.
> But the legacy NormValueSource still typecast any long encoding into byte, as seen in
line 74 in the java file, making any TFIDFSimilarity using more accurate encoding useless.
> It should be removed for the greater good.
