A round of space-leak fixing. - re-instate zapping of the PersistentCompilerState at various points during the compilation cycle in HscMain. This affects one-shot compilation only, since in this mode the information collected in the PCS is not required after creating the final interface file. - Unravel the recursive dependency between MkIface and CoreTidy/CoreToStg. Previously the CafInfo for each binding was calculated by CoreToStg, and fed back into the IdInfo of the Ids generated by CoreTidy (an earlier pass). MkIface then took this IdInfo and the bindings from CoreTidy to generate the interface; but it couldn't do this until *after* CoreToStg, because the CafInfo hadn't been calculated yet. The result was that the CoreTidy output lived until after CoreToStg, and at the same time as the CorePrep and STG syntax, which is wasted space, not to mention the complexity and general ugliness in HscMain. So now we calculate CafInfo directly in CoreTidy. The downside is that we have to predict what CorePrep is going to do to the bindings so we can tell what will turn into a CAF later, but it's no worse than before (it turned out that we were doing this prediction before in CoreToStg anyhow). - The typechecker lazilly typechecks unfoldings. It turns out that this is a good idea from a performance perspective, but it also means that it must hang on to all the information it needs to do the typechecking. Previously this meant holding on to the whole of the typechecker's environment, which includes all sorts of stuff which isn't necessary to typecheck unfoldings. By paring down the environment captured by the lazy unfoldings, we can save quite a bit of space in the phases after typechecking.
