Add +RTS -AL<size>
+RTS -AL<size> controls the total size of large objects that can be allocated before a GC is triggered. Previously this was always just the value of -A, and the limit mainly existed to prevent runaway allocation in pathalogical programs that allocate a lot of large objects. However, since the limit is shared between all cores, on a large multicore the default becomes more restrictive, and can end up triggering GC well before it would normally have been. Arguably a better default would be A*N, but this is probably excessive. Adding a flag lets you choose, and I've left the default as it was. See docs for usage.
