      Description

      As of WT-4427, WiredTiger no longer supports anything other than 8B timestamps, which makes the hexadecimal string APIs for getting/setting timestamps unnecessary overhead.

      Daniel Gottlieb and Geert Bosch have expressed a preference for making the switch, noting the string conversions to/from MongoDB's internal integral timestamp values do show up on performance profiles.

      Change the WiredTiger timestamp APIs to use integral values instead of hexadecimal strings.
