Hadrian: introduce an easy way for users to build with -split-sections

Any user can now trivially build any number of Haskell packages with
`-split-sections` by using `splitSections`/`splitSectionsIf` on any
existing or new flavour:

    -- build all packages but the ghc library with -split-sections
    splitSections :: Flavour -> Flavour

    -- build all packages that satisfy the given predicate
    -- with --split-sections
    splitSectionsIf :: (Package -> Bool) -> Flavour -> Flavour

See the new section in `doc/`.

## Split sections
You can build all or just a few packages with
[`-split-sections`][split-sections] by tweaking an existing
flavour (whichever matches your needs) using
`splitSections` or `splitSectionsIf`:
``` haskell
splitSections :: Flavour -> Flavour
splitSectionsIf :: (Package -> Bool) -> Flavour -> Flavour
For example, you can easily start with the `quick` flavour and
additionally build all Haskell packages with `-split-sections` by defining a new
flavour as
`(splitSectionsIf (const True) quickFlavour) { name = "quick-split" }`.
You can then start a build with this flavour with `build --flavour=quick-split`.
Changing `(const True)` to `(== base)` would only build `base` with
`-split-sections`, not all Haskell packages as with `quick-split` above.
`splitSections` is simply `splitSectionsIf` applied to the predicate
`(/=ghc)`, i.e it builds all Haskell packages but the `ghc`
library with `-split-sections` (it is usually not worth using that
option with the `ghc` library).
