Clean up internal deprecations in BigInteger

    Description

      BigInteger has some rather ugly legacy deprecations of some private instance variables, to wit bitCount, bitLength, firstNonzeroIntNum and lowestBitSet. These should be cleaned up while ensuring that serialization backward and forward compatibility is maintained. Also, the calculations of the respective values of these variables are subject to non-critical race conditions, but this does not appear to be something which needs to be addressed.
