faking XMM RGS spectra in xspec v11

Piero Ranelli reports that using the background file produced by the SAS tool rgsbkgmodel in xspec v11 fakeit produces errors. The cause was an array overflow in wrtfak.f because I'd not increased the size to allow for up to 7 columns in the output spectrum. This problem does not occur in v12. Fixed as 11.3.2z.
