The sparc64 boot stack reserves a large amount of space unnecessarily. I have reworked the boot stack to shrink its size and to co-locate it with the boot code; linkcmds no longer exports the stack size or location as they are now fixed in start.S. Additional space is now allotted to the heap (and workspace) in linkcmds.

I have also eliminated some unused debug code and made some whitespace fixes in start.S and linkcmds.
