[SPARC] Further work around problematic paradoxical subregs

Word-mode paradoxical subregs have been problematic on big-endian architectures 
for ages, and the PA and SPARC ports have a workaround for this in the form of 
the CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS macro.  The SPARC one was more limited in scope, 
but 10 ACATS tests fail at -O2 on the mainline because of this, so this patch 
extends it to fix them.

Tested on SPARC64/Solaris, applied on the mainline.

	* config/sparc/sparc.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): In 64-bit mode,
	disallow changes from SFmode to mode with different size in FP regs.
