Strict aliasing and chains revisited

I changed the chain control definition to (in CVS head):

typedef union {
  struct {
    Chain_Node Node;
    Chain_Node *fill;
  } Head;

  struct {
    Chain_Node *fill;
    Chain_Node Node;
  } Tail;
} Chain_Control;

This will lead to compile time errors in user code in case of chain API violations.

I also added test cases to

testsuites/sptests/spchain

to ensure that the layout is as expected.
