> Prompted by a request from Volkan Yazıcı I took a look at why the java.time formatters are less efficient for some common patterns than custom formatters in apache-commons and log4j. This patch reduces the gap, without having looked at the third party implementations. 
> When printing times:
> - Avoid turning integral values into `String`s before appending them to the buffer 
> - Specialize `appendFraction` for `NANO_OF_SECOND` to avoid use of `BigDecimal`
> This means a speed-up and reduction in allocations when formatting almost any date or time pattern, and especially so when including sub-second parts (`S-SSSSSSSSS`).
> Much of the remaining overhead can be traced to the need to create a `DateTimePrintContext` and adjusting `Instant`s into a `ZonedDateTime` internally. We could likely also win performance by specializing some common patterns.
> Testing: tier1-3
