sparc: Remove set_vector() function

rtems_isr_entry set_vector(                   /* returns old vector */
  rtems_isr_entry     handler,                /* isr routine        */
  rtems_vector_number vector,                 /* vector number      */
  int                 type                    /* RTEMS or RAW intr  */

is an unsafe interface since it works with incompatible function pointer types by design. This leads to warnings like this:

../../../bsps/sparc/leon3/start/setvec.c: In function 'set_vector':

The set_vector() function is undocumented.

The proposed solution is to

  1. clear and unmask the corresponding interrupts in rtems_interrupt_catch(),
  1. replace all set_vector(*, *, 1) calls wtith rtems_interrupt_catch(),
  1. verify that there are no set_vector(*, *, 0) uses, if present, then replace then with _CPU_ISR_install_raw_handler(), and
  1. remove set_vector().
