~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An InertSet is a bag of canonical constraints, with the following invariants:

  1 No two constraints react with each other. 
    
    A tricky case is when there exists a given (solved) dictionary 
    constraint and a wanted identical constraint in the inert set, but do 
    not react because reaction would create loopy dictionary evidence for 
    the wanted. See note [Recursive dictionaries]

  2 Given equalities form an idempotent substitution [none of the
    given LHS's occur in any of the given RHS's or reactant parts]

  3 Wanted equalities also form an idempotent substitution
  4 The entire set of equalities is acyclic.

  5 Wanted dictionaries are inert with the top-level axiom set 

  6 Equalities of the form tv1 ~ tv2 always have a touchable variable
    on the left (if possible).
  7 No wanted constraints tv1 ~ tv2 with tv1 touchable. Such constraints 
    will be marked as solved right before being pushed into the inert set. 
    See note [Touchables and givens].
 
Note that 6 and 7 are /not/ enforced by canonicalization but rather by 
insertion in the inert list, ie by TcInteract. 

During the process of solving, the inert set will contain some
previously given constraints, some wanted constraints, and some given
constraints which have arisen from solving wanted constraints. For
now we do not distinguish between given and solved constraints.

Note that we must switch wanted inert items to given when going under an
implication constraint (when in top-level inference mode).

Note [InertSet FlattenSkolemEqClass] 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The inert_fsks field of the inert set contains an "inverse map" of all the 
flatten skolem equalities in the inert set. For instance, if inert_cts looks
like this: 
 
    fsk1 ~ fsk2 
    fsk3 ~ fsk2 
    fsk4 ~ fsk5 

Then, the inert_fsks fields holds the following map: 
    fsk2 |-> { fsk1, fsk3 } 
    fsk5 |-> { fsk4 } 
Along with the necessary coercions to convert fsk1 and fsk3 back to fsk2 
and fsk4 back to fsk5. Hence, the invariants of the inert_fsks field are: 
  
   (a) All TcTyVars in the domain and range of inert_fsks are flatten skolems
   (b) All TcTyVars in the domain of inert_fsk occur naked as rhs in some 
       equalities of inert_cts 
   (c) For every mapping  fsk1 |-> { (fsk2,co), ... } it must be: 
         co : fsk2 ~ fsk1 

The role of the inert_fsks is to make it easy to maintain the equivalence
class of each flatten skolem, which is much needed to correctly do spontaneous
solving. See Note [Loopy Spontaneous Solving]

Note [Touchables and givens]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Touchable variables will never show up in givens which are inputs to
the solver.  However, touchables may show up in givens generated by the flattener.  
For example,

  axioms:
    G Int ~ Char
    F Char ~ Int

  wanted:
    F (G alpha) ~w Int
  
canonicalises to

  G alpha ~g b
  F b ~w Int

which can be put in the inert set.  Suppose we also have a wanted

  alpha ~w Int

We cannot rewrite the given G alpha ~g b using the wanted alpha ~w
Int.  Instead, after reacting alpha ~w Int with the whole inert set,
we observe that we can solve it by unifying alpha with Int, so we mark
it as solved and put it back in the *work list*. [We also immediately unify
alpha := Int, without telling anyone, see trySpontaneousSolve function, to 
avoid doing this in the end.]

Later, because it is solved (given, in effect), we can use it to rewrite 
G alpha ~g b to G Int ~g b, which gets put back in the work list. Eventually, 
we will dispatch the remaining wanted constraints using the top-level axioms.

Finally, note that after reacting a wanted equality with the entire inert set
we may end up with something like

  b ~w alpha

which we should flip around to generate the solved constraint alpha ~s b.

Note [Kind errors] 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Consider the wanted problem: 
      alpha ~ (# Int, Int #) 
where alpha :: ?? and (# Int, Int #) :: (#). We can't spontaneously solve this constraint, 
but we should rather reject the program that give rise to it. If 'trySpontaneousEqTwoWay' 
simply returns @Nothing@ then that wanted constraint is going to propagate all the way and 
get quantified over in inference mode. That's bad because we do know at this point that the 
constraint is insoluble. Instead, we call 'kindErrorTcS' here, which immediately fails. 

The same applies in canonicalization code in case of kind errors in the givens. 
584 585 586 587 588 589 590 591 592 593 594

Note [Spontaneous solving and kind compatibility] 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note that our canonical constraints insist that only *given* equalities (tv ~ xi) 
or (F xis ~ rhs) require the LHS and the RHS to have exactly the same kinds. 

  - We have to require this because: 
        Given equalities can be freely used to rewrite inside 
        other types or constraints.
  - We do not have to do the same for wanteds because:
595 596 597 598 599 600 601 602
        First, wanted equations (tv ~ xi) where tv is a touchable
        unification variable may have kinds that do not agree (the
        kind of xi must be a sub kind of the kind of tv).  Second, any
        potential kind mismatch will result in the constraint not
        being soluble, which will be reported anyway. This is the
        reason that @trySpontaneousOneWay@ and @trySpontaneousTwoWay@
        will perform a kind compatibility check, and only then will
        they proceed to @solveWithIdentity@.
603 604 605 606 607 608 609 610 611 612 613

Caveat: 
  - Givens from higher-rank, such as: 
          type family T b :: * -> * -> * 
          type instance T Bool = (->) 

          f :: forall a. ((T a ~ (->)) => ...) -> a -> ... 
          flop = f (...) True 
     Whereas we would be able to apply the type instance, we would not be able to 
     use the given (T Bool ~ (->)) in the body of 'flop' 

614 615 616 617 618 619 620 621 622 623 624 625 626
Note [Loopy spontaneous solving] 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Consider the original wanted: 
   wanted :  Maybe (E alpha) ~ alpha 
where E is a type family, such that E (T x) = x. After canonicalization, 
as a result of flattening, we will get: 
   given  : E alpha ~ fsk 
   wanted : alpha ~ Maybe fsk
where (fsk := E alpha, on the side). Now, if we spontaneously *solve* 
(alpha := Maybe fsk) we are in trouble! Instead, we should refrain from solving 
it and keep it as wanted.  In inference mode we'll end up quantifying over
   (alpha ~ Maybe (E alpha))
Hence, 'solveWithIdentity' performs a small occurs check before
627 628 629 630 631 632 633 634 635 636 637 638 639 640 641 642 643 644 645 646 647 648 649 650 651 652 653 654 655 656 657 658 659 660 661 662
actually solving. But this occurs check *must look through* flatten skolems.

However, it may be the case that the flatten skolem in hand is equal to some other 
flatten skolem whith *does not* mention our unification variable. Here's a typical example:

Original wanteds: 
   g: F alpha ~ F beta 
   w: alpha ~ F alpha 
After canonicalization: 
   g: F beta ~ f1 
   g: F alpha ~ f1 
   w: alpha ~ f2 
   g: F alpha ~ f2 
After some reactions: 
   g: f1 ~ f2 
   g: F beta ~ f1 
   w: alpha ~ f2 
   g: F alpha ~ f2 
At this point, we will try to spontaneously solve (alpha ~ f2) which remains as yet unsolved.
We will look inside f2, which immediately mentions (F alpha), so it's not good to unify! However
by looking at the equivalence class of the flatten skolems, we can see that it is fine to 
unify (alpha ~ f1) which solves our goals! 

A similar problem happens because of other spontaneous solving. Suppose we have the 
following wanteds, arriving in this exact order:
  (first)  w: beta ~ alpha 
  (second) w: alpha ~ fsk 
  (third)  g: F beta ~ fsk
Then, we first spontaneously solve the first constraint, making (beta := alpha), and having
(beta ~ alpha) as given. *Then* we encounter the second wanted (alpha ~ fsk). "fsk" does not 
obviously mention alpha, so naively we can also spontaneously solve (alpha := fsk). But 
that is wrong since fsk mentions beta, which has already secretly been unified to alpha! 

To avoid this problem, the same occurs check must unveil rewritings that can happen because 
of spontaneously having solved other constraints. 

663 664 665 666 667 668 669

Note [Avoid double unifications] 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The spontaneous solver has to return a given which mentions the unified unification
variable *on the left* of the equality. Here is what happens if not: 
  Original wanted:  (a ~ alpha),  (alpha ~ Int) 
We spontaneously solve the first wanted, without changing the order! 
670
      given : a ~ alpha      [having unified alpha := a] 
671 672 673
Now the second wanted comes along, but he cannot rewrite the given, so we simply continue.
At the end we spontaneously solve that guy, *reunifying*  [alpha := Int] 

674 675 676
We avoid this problem by orienting the given so that the unification
variable is on the left.  [Note that alternatively we could attempt to
enforce this at canonicalization]
677

678 679 680
See also Note [No touchables as FunEq RHS] in TcSMonad; avoiding
double unifications is the main reason we disallow touchable
unification variables as RHS of type family equations: F xis ~ alpha.

Note [Superclasses and recursive dictionaries]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Overlaps with Note [SUPERCLASS-LOOP 1]

                  Note [Recursive instances and superclases]
    ToDo: check overlap and delete redundant stuff

Right before adding a given into the inert set, we must
produce some more work, that will bring the superclasses 
of the given into scope. The superclass constraints go into 
our worklist. 

When we simplify a wanted constraint, if we first see a matching
instance, we may produce new wanted work. To (1) avoid doing this work 
twice in the future and (2) to handle recursive dictionaries we may ``cache'' 
this item as solved (in effect, given) into our inert set and with that add 
its superclass constraints (as given) in our worklist. 

But now we have added partially solved constraints to the worklist which may 
interact with other wanteds. Consider the example: 

Example 1: 

    class Eq b => Foo a b        --- 0-th selector
    instance Eq a => Foo [a] a   --- fooDFun

and wanted (Foo [t] t). We are first going to see that the instance matches 
and create an inert set that includes the solved (Foo [t] t) and its 
superclasses. 
       d1 :_g Foo [t] t                 d1 := EvDFunApp fooDFun d3 
       d2 :_g Eq t                      d2 := EvSuperClass d1 0 
Our work list is going to contain a new *wanted* goal
       d3 :_w Eq t 
It is wrong to react the wanted (Eq t) with the given (Eq t) because that would 
construct loopy evidence. Hence the check isGoodRecEv in doInteractWithInert. 

OK, so we have ruled out bad behaviour, but how do we ge recursive dictionaries, 
at all? Consider

Example 2:

    data D r = ZeroD | SuccD (r (D r));
    
    instance (Eq (r (D r))) => Eq (D r) where
        ZeroD     == ZeroD     = True
        (SuccD a) == (SuccD b) = a == b
        _         == _         = False;
    
    equalDC :: D [] -> D [] -> Bool;
    equalDC = (==);

We need to prove (Eq (D [])). Here's how we go:

	d1 :_w Eq (D [])

by instance decl, holds if
	d2 :_w Eq [D []]
	where 	d1 = dfEqD d2

*BUT* we have an inert set which gives us (no superclasses): 
        d1 :_g Eq (D []) 
By the instance declaration of Eq we can show the 'd2' goal if 
	d3 :_w Eq (D [])
	where	d2 = dfEqList d3
		d1 = dfEqD d2
Now, however this wanted can interact with our inert d1 to set: 
        d3 := d1 
and solve the goal. Why was this interaction OK? Because, if we chase the 
evidence of d1 ~~> dfEqD d2 ~~-> dfEqList d3, so by setting d3 := d1 we 
are really setting
        d3 := dfEqD2 (dfEqList d3) 
which is FINE because the use of d3 is protected by the instance function 
applications. 

So, our strategy is to try to put solved wanted dictionaries into the
inert set along with their superclasses (when this is meaningful,
i.e. when new wanted goals are generated) but solve a wanted dictionary
from a given only in the case where the evidence variable of the
wanted is mentioned in the evidence of the given (recursively through
the evidence binds) in a protected way: more instance function applications 
than superclass selectors.

Here are some more examples from GHC's previous type checker


Example 3: 
This code arises in the context of "Scrap Your Boilerplate with Class"

    class Sat a
    class Data ctx a
    instance  Sat (ctx Char)             => Data ctx Char       -- dfunData1
    instance (Sat (ctx [a]), Data ctx a) => Data ctx [a]        -- dfunData2

    class Data Maybe a => Foo a    

    instance Foo t => Sat (Maybe t)                             -- dfunSat

    instance Data Maybe a => Foo a                              -- dfunFoo1
    instance Foo a        => Foo [a]                            -- dfunFoo2
    instance                 Foo [Char]                         -- dfunFoo3

Consider generating the superclasses of the instance declaration
	 instance Foo a => Foo [a]

So our problem is this
    d0 :_g Foo t
    d1 :_w Data Maybe [t] 

We may add the given in the inert set, along with its superclasses
[assuming we don't fail because there is a matching instance, see 
 tryTopReact, given case ]
  Inert:
    d0 :_g Foo t 
  WorkList 
    d01 :_g Data Maybe t  -- d2 := EvDictSuperClass d0 0 
    d1 :_w Da
