1067760 -- float-->long conversion on fileobj.seek calls, rather than float-->int. Permits larger floats (2.0**62) to match large int (2**62) arguments. rhettinger marked as "won't fix" in the original bug report; this seems like a clean solution, tho. Recommend apply.
Wouldn't this cause subtle errors when the float -> long conversion is no longer precise? Or is this a non issue because it could only happen when seeking on impossibly large files?
