DaveM pointed out that my 2.4.0-test8-pre1 do_fork patch would generate
better sparc assembler if the extra parameter to do_fork was added at
the end instead of in the middle.  So change all do_fork(flags,sp,0,&regs)
to do_fork(flags,sp,&regs,0);

I'm not going to mail the complete patch again, you can get it from
ftp://ftp.ocs.com.au/pub/do_fork-2.4.0-test8-take2.gz.  The only
significant difference is this bit to IA64, untested.
