remove useless infinite loop from end of exit function
this was originally added as a cheap but portable way to quell warnings about reaching the end of a function that does not return, but since _Exit is marked _Noreturn, it's not needed. removing it makes the call to _Exit into a tail call and shaves off a few bytes of code from minimal static programs.
