[GIT] Sparc

From: David Miller

Two small fixes for Sparc, nobody uses sparc, so these are
low risk :-)

1) Piggyback is too picky about the symbol types that _start
and _end have in the final kernel image, and it thus breaks
with newer binutils. Future proof by getting rid of the
symbol type checks.

2) exit_group() should kill register windows on sparc64 the same
way we do for plain exit(). Thanks to Al Viro for spotting

Please pull, thanks a lot!
