      Re-organisation of ghc/lib/std and hslibs/lang
      In brief: move deprecated features out of ghc/lib/std and into
      hslibs/lang, move new FFI libraries into ghc/lib/std and start
      using them.
      - foreign import may now return an unboxed type (this was
        advertised to work before, but in fact didn't).  Subsequent
        cleanups in PrelInt/PrelWord.
      - Ptr is now defined in ghc/lib/std/PrelPtr.lhs.  Ptr is no
        longer a newtype of Addr, it is defined directly in terms of
      - PrelAddr has disappeared from ghc/lib/std, all uses of Addr in
        ghc/lib/std have been replaced with Ptr.  The definitions of
        Addr has been moved to hslibs/lang/Addr.lhs, as has
        lots of other Addr-related stuff.
      - ForeignObj has been removed from ghc/lib/std, and replaced with
        ForeignPtr.  The definition of ForeignObj has been moved to
      - Most of the new FFI has been moved into ghc/lib/std in the form
        of modules PrelMarshalAlloc, PrelCString, PrelCError,
        PrelMarshalError, PrelMarshalArray, PrelMarshalUtils,
        PrelCTypes, PrelCTypesISO, and PrelStorable.  The corresponding
        modules in hslibs/lang simply re-export the contents of these
      - PrelPosixTypes defines a few POSIX types (CMode == mode_t,
      - PrelCError changed to access errno using foreign label and peek
        (the POSIX book I have says that errno is guaranteed to be an
        extern int, so this should be OK until I get around to making
        errno thread-safe).
      - Hacked the macros that generate the code for CTypes and
        CTypesISO to generate much less code
      - RtsAPI is now a bit more honest when it comes to building heap
        objects (it uses the correct constructors).
      - the Bits class and related stuff has been moved to ghc/lib/std
        (it was simpler this way).
      - Directory and System have been converted to use the new FFI.

      Automagically add a GHC #define. These are the final changes to get a
      bootstrapping GHC without a build.mk, thus enabling people (like me :-)
      who forget obscure options quite often to build GHC painlessly.
      Happy New Year!

      - Add primops for {read,write,index}{Int,Word}{8,16,32,64}OffAddr.
          This enables us to remove all the _casm_s from Int/Word.
        - Replace new{Char,Int,etc.}Array# with newByteArray# (save a few primops,
          at the cost of having to know the size of these types in PrelArr).
        - Implement MArray/IArray support for sized types.  finally.
        - Move the guts of the sized types into ghc/lib/std, we'll need
          them for doing more FFIish things in the Prelude.
