      Fix bug #1073501: checkProddableBlock: invalid fixup in runtime linker
      The bug manifested when trying to load an object with debugging info
      (compiled with gcc -g) into GHCi.
      The problem was that the object loader was ignoring the sections
      containing debugging info, but then it was later trying to do
      relocations for those sections, and its own sanity checking code
      correctly detected that the relocations were in unknown parts of the
      object file.
      The fix is to ignore relocations whose target section isn't one of the
      sections that we're interested in, using the same test in both cases
      (the code to test section kind has been extracted).  The code could
      probably benefit from more refactoring: it looks like the list of
      sections we build up in the first phase isn't even used in the second
      phase, instead we traverse the section table in the image again.  This
      looks like cruft leftover from when the GC used to check whether an
      address was in text or data space.

      Prevent any intermediate file deletion using
      and remove now-unnecessary .PRECIOUS and .SECONDARY targets.
      Suggestion from Ashley Yakeley.

      	Bug in specialisation
      Laszlo managed to get a function like this:
      	foo :: Enum a => (# a, Int #)
      The specialiser specialised it, resulting in an unboxed tuple
      binding, which Lint objected to.
      This commit adds a dummy argument to the specialised function, 
      very like the case for strictness analysis.  For example, at
      type Char we'd get
      	foo_char :: State# RealWorld -> (# Char, Int #)
       	foo_char = \_ -> ...
      We use a State# type because it generates no argument-passing code 
      at runtime.  (We should really have some other void type for this 
      purpose, because State# is misleading, but this way avoids extra

      	Bug in loop detection in TcSimplify
      The type-class context simplifier has been able to 
      build recursive dictionaries for some time: co-induction.
      That is, you can build a proof for constraint C by assuming
      that C holds when proving the preconditions of C.
      You need to be in -fallow-undecidable-instances land to 
      make use of this: see comments with [RECURSIVE DICTIONARIES]
      in TcSimplify.lhs.
      Anyway, this is all fine, but I'd implemented it wrong!  You need
      to be very careful with superclasses, or you can make a bogus
      loop by mistake.  This commit fixes it; tests LoopOfTheDay{1,2,3}
      will test it (thanks Ralf Laemmel).

      unregister/describe: allow the package name to be given without the
      version, as long as it is unambiguous.
      Strange, I was sure I'd implemented expose/hide in here, but they're
      stubbed out.  Oh well.
