There are 4 generic routines in "./FPC_SRC/rtl/inc/generic.inc":

 procedure int_str(l:longint;out s:shortstring);
 procedure int_str_unsigned(l:longword;out s:shortstring);
 procedure int_str(l:int64;out s:shortstring);
 procedure int_str_unsigned(l:qword;out s:shortstring);

And also an i386-speciic assembler variants in "./FPC_SRC/rtl/i386/i386.inc", which I suspect use approach similar to yours, but I'm not sure they are "enabled"..

{$if defined(disabled) and defined(regcall)}
 procedure int_str(l:longword;out s:string);
 procedure int_str(l:longint;out s:string);
 {Optimized for speed, but balanced with size.}
 const digits:array[0..9] of cardinal=

So You can try to propose your changes to "generic.inc"..
