Bug #38380 Large Numbers don't get sent properly in a prepared stmt

When sending a large number (e.g. 10354520101202315) via a prepared stmt, the end result in MySQL is not correct.

MySQL 4.1.19

Reproduce code:
CREATE TABLE `test` (`number` bigint(20) NOT NULL default '0') ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1

$db = &new MySQLi($host,$user,$pass,$dbname);
$stmt = $db->stmt_init();
$sql = "INSERT INTO test (number) VALUES (?)";
$number = 10354520101202315;
$result = $stmt->execute();

Expected result:
Result in MySQL is 10354520101202316 - it should be 10354520101202315.

If I use a normal INSERT statement, then it works as expected. Changing the bind type to 's' then that works, but I have to change $number to 

$number = '10354520101202315';

Actual result:
MySQL reports number as 10354520101202316

Floating point values have a limited precision. Hence a value might 
not have the same string representation after any processing. That also
includes writing a floating point value in your script and directly 
printing it without any mathematical operations.

If you would like to know more about "floats" and what IEEE
754 is read this:
Thank you for your interest in PHP.

$number = 10354520101202315; is not int, it's float.
