Flags cleanup. Basically the purpose of this commit is to move more of the compiler's global state into DynFlags, which is moving in the direction we need to go for the GHC API which can have multiple active sessions supported by a single GHC instance. Before: $ grep 'global_var' */*hs | wc -l 78 After: $ grep 'global_var' */*hs | wc -l 27 Well, it's an improvement. Most of what's left won't really affect our ability to host multiple sessions. Lots of static flags have become dynamic flags (yay!). Notably lots of flags that we used to think of as "driver" flags, like -I and -L, are now dynamic. The most notable static flags left behind are the "way" flags, eg. -prof. It would be nice to fix this, but it isn't urgent. On the way, lots of cleanup has happened. Everything related to static and dynamic flags lives in StaticFlags and DynFlags respectively, and they share a common command-line parser library in CmdLineParser. The flags related to modes (--makde, --interactive etc.) are now private to the front end: in fact private to Main itself, for now.
