    [ghc-pkg] Fix #5442 by using the flag db stack to modify packages. · d7c807f7
    Edward Z. Yang authored
    Previously, the full database stack was used for ghc-pkg to
    modify packages, which meant that commands like
    'ghc-pkg unregister --user' worked the same as 'ghc-pkg unregister'.
    Since package modification is a "read and write" operation, we
    should use the flag db stack (which is currently used for reads)
    to determine which database to update.
    There is also a new flag --user-package-db, which lets you explicitly
    set the user database (as seen by --user).  This was mostly added
    to aid in testing, but could be useful for end users as well.
