Comment(by int-e):

 Looking at the CMM code, the most noticable difference seems that
 ghc-7.0.3 used to generate a foreign call for the second part of the
 conversion,
 {{{
           integer_cbits_encodeDouble((_c2ut::I64, `signed'),
                                      (_c2uv::I64, PtrHint), (0,
 `signed'))[_unsafe_call_];
 }}}
 while the current code (since ghc-7.2.1) sets up a stack frame and jumps
 into the integer package.

 Not sure how much of the observed differences that explains.
