    nativeGen: Fix string merging on Windows · 55361b38
    Ben Gamari authored
    D1290 places string constants in the `.rodata.str` section with `aMS`
    section flags so that the linker can merge them. However, it seems that
    ld doesn't understand these flags. It appears that `gcc
    -fmerge-constants` uses the `dr` flags on Windows. Make GHC do the same.
