Description

Prior to Lua 5.3, Lua only had one number type, float. Now that Lua 5.1 has integer types it makes sense to push integer values, specifically those around flow and packet tuples as integers. Luajit 5.1 and Liblua 5.0 has lua_pushinteger so compatibility should not be an issue.

Suricata-Verify test cases for SCPacketTuple() and SCFlowTuple() should also be created to show that they pass before and after this change without modification.
