    Hadrian: bump Cabal submodule, install extra dynamic flavours of RTS · fb997160
    Alp Mestanogullari authored
    Previously, Hadrian was building all the appropriate dynamic ways for
    libHSrts
    but they were not picked up and installed in the package database when
    we register the rts library. Since we use Cabal for registering
    packages and
    the .cabal files of packages as sources of truth for configuring and
    installing,
    we ended up patching Cabal to add a new field,
    'extra-dynamic-library-flavours',
    to specify those extra flavours to install in .cabal files:
    
        https://github.com/haskell/cabal/pull/5606
    
    We now make use of this in rts.cabal.in to expose dynamic flavours
    behind a
    Cabal flag, which Hadrian will use whenever we are building a GHC
    flavour that
    requires dynamic libraries.
    
    This is all part of a larger plan to build a dynamic stage 2 GHC by
    default,
    like with make, which in turn will fix a lot of test failures. See
    
    Test Plan:
    hadrian/build.sh _build/stage1/lib/package.conf.d/rts-1.0.conf
    _build/stage1/lib/x86_64-.../ should contain many libHSrts-*.so
