      Change the type of catch# to
      
      	catch# :: (W# -> (# W#, a #))
      	       -> (b -> W# -> (# W#, a #))
      	       -> W# -> (# W# , a #)
      
      where W# == State# RealWorld.  In other words, make it explicit that
      catch# is an IO operation and takes IO operations as arguments.  The
      previous type was too general, and resulted in catch# having the wrong
      arity which could cause mis-optimisations.
      
      The down side is that we now have to pass the state token around
      inside the primop instead of doing it in the Haskell wrapper, and
      raiseAsync() also has to build a PAP(handler,exception,realworld)
      instead of just a PAP(handler,exception) when it invokes a handler as
      a result of an async exception.
      
      I also added some optimisations to (un)?blockAsyncException to not
      grow the stack if it can be avoided, such as when we're about to block
      async exceptions and there's a blockAsyncExceptions_ret stack frame on
      the top of the stack.

      This commit arranges that literal strings will fuse
      nicely, by expressing them as an application of build.
      
      * NoRepStr is now completely redundant, though I havn't removed it yet.
      
      * The unpackStr stuff moves from PrelPack to PrelBase.
      
      * There's a new form of Rule, a BuiltinRule, for rules that
        can't be expressed in Haskell.  The string-fusion rule is one
        such.  It's defined in prelude/PrelRules.lhs.
      
      * PrelRules.lhs also contains a great deal of code that
        implements constant folding.  In due course this will replace
        ConFold.lhs, but for the moment it simply duplicates it.

      Add Marc Van Dongen's Integer improvements.  Specifically:
      
      	- new primops: gcdInt#, gcdIntegerInt#, divExact#,
      	  quotInteger#, remInteger#.
      
      	- new definitions of quot and rem for Integer in
      	  PrelNum (using the new quotInteger# and remInteger#
      	  primops instead of quotRemInteger#).  Should be
      	  slightly faster than before.  div & mod aren't
      	  likewise optimised (yet).
      
      	- specialisations of gcd for Int and Integer, and
      	  lcm for Integer in PrelNum.

      Support for blocking & unblocking asynchronous exceptions.
      
        - new primops:
      
      	blockAsyncExceptions#, unblockAsyncExceptions# :: IO a -> IO a
      
        - raiseInThread will block if the target thread is currently
          blocking async exceptions.
      
        - async exceptions are currently implicitly blocked inside
          an exception handler.  This decision might be reversed when
          we have more experience with this stuff.
      
        - Move exception-related stuff in the RTS into its own file,
          Exception.{h,hc}.

      Make primOpHasSideEffects return True for the various Write primops.
      Amazingly, this wasn't done, and that meant that Write operations
      could be silently discarded!  This broke the GHC typechecker
      (actually the implementation of checkNoErrsTc, showed up in

      Allow mkWeak# to take an unlifted type as the key argument.  The
      intention is that boxed-but-unlifted types can be used as keys, not
      unlifted types in general but there's no way to enforce this at the
      moment.

      (this is number 4 of 9 commits to be applied together)
      
        The major purpose of this commit is to introduce usage information
        and usage analysis into the compiler, per the paper _Once Upon a
        Polymorphic Type_ (Keith Wansbrough and Simon Peyton Jones, POPL'99,
        and Glasgow TR-1998-19).
      
        Usage information has been added to types, in the form of a new kind
        of NoteTy: (UsgNote UsageAnn(UsOnce|UsMany|UsVar UVar)).  Usages
        print as __o (once), __m (many, usually omitted), or (not in
        interface files) __uvxxxx.  Usage annotations should only appear at
        certain places in a type (see the paper).  The `default' annotation
        is __m, and so an omitted annotation implies __m.  Utility functions
        for handling usage annotations are provided in Type.
      
        If the compiler is built with -DUSMANY (a flag intended for use in
        debugging by KSW only), __m are *required* and may not be omitted.
      
        The major constraint is that type arguments (eg to mkAppTy) must be
        unannotated on top.  To maintain this invariant, many functions
        required the insertion of Type.unUsgTy (removing annot from top of a
        type) or UsageSPUtils.unannotTy (removing all annotations from a
        type).  A function returning usage-annotated types for primops has
        been added to PrimOp.
      
        A new kind of Note, (TermUsg UsageAnn), has been added to annotate
        Terms.  This note is *not* printed in interface files, and for the
        present does not escape the internals of the usage inference engine.

      Improvements to the threading model.
      
         - asynchronous exceptions supported.
      
      	- killThread# can now raise an exception in the specified
      	  thread.  It's new type is
      
      		killThread# :: ThreadId# -> Exception -> IO ()
      
      	  High-level versions:
      
      		killThread :: ThreadId -> IO ()
      		raiseInThread :: ThreadId -> Exception -> IO ()
      
      	  (killThread raises a 'ThreadKilled' exception in the
      	   specified thread).
      
      	  If the thread has no exception handler, it is killed
      	  as before.  Otherwise, the exception is passed to
      	  the innermost CATCH_FRAME and the thread is woken up
      	  if it was blocked.  The current computation is
      	  suspended, instead of being replaced by the exception
      	  (as is the case with throw).
      
      	  Sending an exception to the current thread works too.
      
         - new primitive: myThreadId# :: IO ThreadId# and corresponding
           high-level version myThreadId :: IO ThreadId.
      
         - new primitive: yield# :: IO (), and yield :: IO ().
      
         - the TSO now contains a pointer to the resource currently blocked
           on (MVAR or BLACKHOLE_BQ).
      
        - Add a giant comment to TSO.h about what the various link fields
          are supposed to do, and invariants etc.

      Add two new operations to StgPrimFloat.c:
      
      	__int_encodeFloat
      	__int_encodeDouble
      
      for encoding floats/doubles from small integers.  This avoids having
      to convert small integers to large ones before an encodeFloat
      operation, and fixes the two cases of slowdown in nofib after the
      small integer changes.
      
      Also:
      	- remove encodeFloat and decodeFloat as primops
      	- use foreign import for encode{Float,Double} and
      	  the various isNaN etc. ccalls in PrelNumExtra.

      Finally!  This commits the ongoing saga of Simon's hygiene sweep
      
      FUNCTIONALITY
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      a) The 'unused variable' warnings from the renamer work.  
      b) Better error messages here and there, esp type checker
      c) Fixities for Haskell 98 (maybe I'd done that before)
      d) Lazy reporting of name clashes for Haskell 98 (ditto)
      
      HYGIENE
      ~~~~~~~
      a) type OccName has its own module.  OccNames are represented
         by a single FastString, not three as in the last round.  This
         string is held in Z-encoded form; a decoding function decodes
         for printing in user error messages.  There's a nice tight
         encoding for (,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,)
      
      b) type Module is a proper ADT, in module OccName
      
      c) type RdrName is a proper ADT, in its own module
      
      d) type Name has a new, somwhat tidier, representation
      
      e) much grunting in the renamer to get Provenances right.
         This makes error messages look better (no spurious qualifiers)

      Assorted minor Haskell 98 changes:
      
        * Maximal munch rule for "--" comments
        * _ as lower-case letter, "_" is a reserved id. Prefixing unused
          variable names in patterns with '_' causes the renamer not to
          report such names as being unused.
        * allow empty decls
        * comprehensions are now list comprehensions, not monadic.
        * use Monad.fail to signal pattern matching errors within
          do expressions.
        * remove record punning.
        * empty contexts are now legal  (go wild!)
        * allow records with no fields
        * allow newtypes with a labelled field
        * default default is now (Integer, Double)
        * turn off defaulting mechanism for args & res to a _ccall_.
        * allow LHSs of the form  (a -.- b) x = ...
        * Main.main can now have type (IO a)

      1.  Add primOpStrictness to PrimOp.lhs, and use it in
      	- the strictness analyser
      	- the simplifier
          to deal correctly with PrimOps that are non-strict.
      
         ToDo: use this new facility to clean up SeqOp, ParOp.
      
      2. Fix the instance-decl-import bug, but printing de-synonym'd types
         in interface files.
      
      3. Make the simplifier treat applications with an unlifted-type arg
         in the same way it would if the function was strict
         (in rebuild_strict)

      Another big commit from Simon.  Actually, the last one
      didn't all go into the main trunk; because of a CVS glitch it
      ended up in the wrong branch.
      
      So this commit includes:
      
      * Scoped type variables
      * Warnings for unused variables should work now (they didn't before)
      * Simplifier improvements:
      	- Much better treatment of strict arguments
      	- Better treatment of bottoming Ids
      	- No need for w/w split for fns that are merely strict
      	- Fewer iterations needed, I hope
      * Less gratuitous renaming in interface files and abs C
      * OccName is a separate module, and is an abstract data type
      
      I think the whole Prelude and Exts libraries compile correctly.
      Something isn't quite right about typechecking existentials though.

      - added primops for read&writing StablePtrs to ByteArrays, Adds and FOs
      - egcs crashes in odd ways when encountering the typedefs we need to
        produce when compiling 'foreign import dynamic's. To workaround the
        problem, kludgily add a CCallTypedef constructor to AbsCSyn.AbstractC
        which the flattener will produce (at the toplevel) when encountering
        CCallOps inside COptStmts.
      - augmented PrimOp.CCallOp to carry a unique when it represents a
        'foreign import dynamic' call. The CoreToStg pass ensures that these
        uniques are exactly that. They're used to eventuall generate (unique)
