Rename Number.prototype.clz to Math.clz

ES6 adds a clz function, but it's a method of Number.prototype.clz
rather than Math.clz.
The rationale for this decision is here (search for clz in the page):
Can we reverse this, for users' sake? The pattern in ES1-5 is quite
strong: math functions go on the Math object.
The rationale (What if we add a uint64 type?) doesn't seem compelling
enough to justify the weirdness of the result: we'll have a single
mathematical operation available only as a Number method, and all
others available only as Math functions.
