Actually, I was expecting some comments on how to make the patch less
ugly. convert_like_real is ugly enough. Also, is build_nop(totype,
integer_zero_node) the correct way to build a zero of type 'totype' ?

But if it is ok with you as it is, I will just add some comments
clarifying the code before committing it.

Thanks for the review,
