Add -fdefer-typed-holes flag which defers hole errors to runtime.
Summary: As proposed by Richard on Trac. This patch adds a new flag -fdefer-typed-holes and changes the semantics of the -fno-warn-typed-holes flag. To summarise, by default GHC has typed holes enabled and produces a compile error when it encounters a typed hole. When -fdefer-type-errors OR -fdefer-typed-holes is enabled, hole errors are converted to warnings and result in runtime errors when evaluated. The warning flag -fwarn-typed-holes is on by default. Without -fdefer-type-errors or -fdefer-typed-holes this flag is a no-op, since typed holes are an error under these conditions. If either of the defer flags are enabled (converting typed hole errors into warnings) the -fno-warn-typed-holes flag disables the warnings. This means compilation silently succeeds and evaluating a hole will produce a runtime error. The rationale behind allowing typed holes warnings to be silenced is that tools like Syntastic for vim highlight warnings and hole warnings may be undesirable.
