    GHCi: use non-updatable thunks for breakpoints · 27779403
    Simon Marlow authored
    The extra safe points introduced for breakpoints were previously
    compiled as normal updatable thunks, but they are guaranteed
    single-entry, so we can use non-updatable thunks here.  This restores
    the tail-call property where it was lost in some cases (although stack
    squeezing probably often recovered it), and should improve
    performance.
