Fix for oversight in PPC ABI patch

I copied the "int_size_in_bytes (type) > 8", which is the center of
the change, from what the late ABI_SOLARIS used to do, without
verifying it was correct.  It wasn't.  int_size_in_bytes may return
-1, which means 'variable or unknown size'; -1 < 8, but it is wrong to
try to put such an object in registers.  Then I didn't bother checking
over the testsuite failures, which was just sloppiness.

This patch fixes this problem.  The approach is kind of ugly but I
don't see a better way, short of calling int_size_in_bytes twice.
It's an obvious fix, but I'm not going to commit this just yet, in
case someone else is cleverer, and also because I'm too tired to be
committing stuff.

There's another problem, which is causing compile/structs.c and
execute/950621-1.c to fail only at -O1.  Fixing that one requires
mucking with the call_value expander, so I'm not going to try to do it
when I'm half asleep.

None of this can ever have worked on solaris/ppc...

Tested with i386-linux -> powerpc-eabisim cross compiler, again.

	int_size_in_bytes to unsigned HOST_WIDEST_INT so that -1 > 8.
