fix sys:get_status backward compatibility for sasl release_handler_1

In R13B04 sys:get_status was modified to invoke format_status/2 in the
callback module if the module exports that function. This resulted in
a change to the term returned from calling sys:get_status on the
supervisor module, since supervisor is a gen_server and gen_server
exports format_status. The sasl release_handler_1 module had a
dependency on the pre-R13B04 term returned by sys:get_status when
invoked on a supervisor, so the R13B04 change broke that dependency.

Change release_handler_1 to handle both the pre-R13B04 and R13B04
terms that sys:get_status can return from a supervisor.
