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
   this.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
