[Vm-dev] [OpenSmalltalk/opensmalltalk-vm] Mixed SmallInteger/Float comparison is inexact in Spur64 when jitted (#417)

One last nit; there is no need to use
	self cppIf: objectMemory wordSize > 4 ifTrue: [ ... ] ].
One can simply write
	objectMemory wordSize > 4 ifTrue: [ ... ].

This is because VMMaker generates entirely different sources for 64-bit and 32-bit VMs, and so the objectMemory wordSize > 4 test is inlined at source generation time.  Reserve cppIf:ifTrue: for things that really are VM-compile-time options, such as whether the VM is being compiled with IMMUTABILITY (read-only) support or not.
