_CPU_Context_switch_to_first_task_smp() WIM patch

I have got SMP the smphack01.exe test to successfully complete on a dual core
LEON3 GR712RC ASIC today, the below patch is required.

At some point the interrupt trap handler causes a window-overflow and the
window overflow trap handler crashes when writing to 0. I found that this is
because the WIM was bad, to the window overflow handler uses a uninitialized
stack pointer in a window never used. The below code is rewritten:
 * g3=CWP, not WIM
 * CWP is incremented by done_flushing no need doing that here also
 * I see no reason to create an additional stack frame (save)
 * Must turn off traps when updating WIM (maybe already done by caller?)
