Moving to attic looks good to me.

I'm a bit unsure. If sparc ever comes back as sparc64, it might make
sense to reuse some bits. But I'm not sure whether both archs would be
close enough for that to happen, or if they would be different beasts
like arm{el,hf} and arm64 are. I suppose the former might be true since
it might just be about the number of bits in kernel/user-space, rather
than a completely new arch.

I've added debian-sparc@ to cc; hopefully someone knowledgeable might
jump in.
