    Initial primop support for the metacircular interpreter (GHCI).
    Only appears if you compile with -DGHCI; if not, the world is
    unchanged.
    
    new primops:
       indexPtrOffClosure#
       indexWordOffClosure#
    
    modified:
       dataToTag#   -- now dereferences indirections before extracting tag
    
    new entry code
       mci_constr_entry          and
       mci_constr[1..8]entry
    being the direct and vectored return code fragments for interpreter
    created constructors.  Support for static constructors is not yet
    done.
    
    New handwritten .hc functions:
       mci_make_constr*
    being code to create various flavours of constructors from args
    on the stack.  An interface file to describe these will follow in
    a later commit.
