CHANTYPE problems

The Suzaku HXD PIN files use a CHANTYPE of PI_PIN. Strictly speaking this is a violation of the standard however it seems too limiting to just allow CHANTYPE the values of PHA or PI. xspec currently generates a spurious error message about mismatched CHANTYPE when reading the HXD spectrum and response. I've put a temporary workaround in RealResponse.cxx which suppresses the spurious warning however we need a more general solution.
