Give seq a more precise type and remove magic
`GHC.Prim.seq` previously had the rather plain type: seq :: forall a b. a -> b -> b However, it also had a special typing rule to applications where `b` is not of kind `Type`. Issue #17440 noted that levity polymorphism allows us to rather give it the more precise type: seq :: forall (r :: RuntimeRep) a (b :: TYPE r). a -> b -> b This allows us to remove the special typing rule that we previously required to allow applications on unlifted arguments. T9404 contains a non-Type application of `seq` which should verify that this works as expected. Closes #17440.
