Improved Valid Hole Fits
I've changed the name from `Valid substitutions` to `Valid hole fits`, since "substitution" already has a well defined meaning within the theory. As part of this change, the flags and output is reanamed, with substitution turning into hole-fit in most cases. "hole fit" was already used internally in the code, it's clear and shouldn't cause any confusion. In this update, I've also reworked how we manage side-effects in the hole we are considering. This allows us to consider local bindings such as where clauses and arguments to functions, suggesting e.g. `a` for `head (x:xs) where head :: [a] -> a`. It also allows us to find suggestions such as `maximum` for holes of type `Ord a => a -> [a]`, and `max` when looking for a match for the hole in `g = foldl1 _`, where `g :: Ord a => [a] -> a`. We also show much improved output for refinement hole fits, and fixes #14990. We now show the correct type of the function, but we also now show what the arguments to the function should be e.g. `foldl1 (_ :: Integer -> Integer -> Integer)` when looking for `[Integer] -> Integer`. I've moved the bulk of the code from `TcErrors.hs` to a new file, `TcHoleErrors.hs`, since it was getting too big to not live on it's own. This addresses the considerations raised in #14969, and takes proper care to set the `tcLevel` of the variables to the right level before passing it to the simplifier. We now also zonk the suggestions properly, which improves the output of the refinement hole fits considerably. This also filters out suggestions from the `GHC.Err` module, since even though `error` and `undefined` are indeed valid hole fits, they are "trivial", and almost never useful to the user. We now find the hole fits using the proper manner, namely by solving nested implications. This entails that the givens are passed along using the implications the hole was nested in, which in turn should mean that there will be fewer weird bugs in the typed holes. I've also added a new sorting method (as suggested by SPJ) and sort by the size of the types needed to turn the hole fits into the type of the hole. This gives a reasonable approximation to relevance, and is much faster than the subsumption check. I've also added a flag to toggle whether to use this new sorting algorithm (as is done by default) or the subsumption algorithm. This fixes #14969 I've also added documentation for these new flags and update the documentation according to the new output.
