[PARISC] Use FIXUP_BRANCH_CLOBBER to asm clobber list
Joel Soete noticed correctly that the fixup's clobbers must be listed as the ASM clobbers. FIXUP_BRANCH in unaligned.c has a new macro which lists all the clobbers in the fixup, we use this throughout the file to simplify the process of listing clobbers in the future. A missing "r1" clobber is added to our uaccess.h for the 64-bit __put_kernel_asm. Interestingly this is a pretty serious bug since gcc generates pretty good use of r1 as a temporary and the uses of __put_kernel_asm are varied and dangerous if r1 is scratched during an invalid write.
