      Threaded RTS improvements:
      
       - Unix only: implement waitRead#, waitWrite# and delay# in Haskell,
         by having a single Haskell thread (the IO manager) performing a blocking
         select() operation.  Threads communicate with the IO manager
         via channels.  This is faster than doing the select() in the RTS,
         because we only restart the select() when a new request arrives,
         rather than each time around the scheduler.
      
         On Windows we just make blocking IO calls, we don't have a fancy IO
         manager (yet).
      
       - Simplify the scheduler for the threaded RTS, now that we don't have
         to wait for IO in the scheduler loop.
      
       - Remove detectBlackHoles(), which isn't used now (not sure how long
         this has been unused for... perhaps it was needed back when main threads
         used to be GC roots, so we had to check for blackholes manually rather
         than relying on the GC.)
      
      Signals aren't quite right in the threaded RTS.  In fact, they're
      slightly worse than before, because the thread receiving signals might
      be blocked in a C call - previously there always be another thread
      stuck in awaitEvent() that would notice the signal, but that's not
      true now.  I can't see an easy fix yet.

      Position Independent Code and Dynamic Linking Support, Part 1
      
      This commit allows generation of position independent code (PIC) that fully supports dynamic linking on Mac OS X and PowerPC Linux.
      Other platforms are not yet supported, and there is no support for actually linking or using dynamic libraries - so if you use the -fPIC or -dynamic code generation flags, you have to type your (platform-specific) linker command lines yourself.
      
      
      nativeGen/PositionIndependentCode.hs:
      New file. Look here for some more comments on how this works.
      
      cmm/CLabel.hs:
      Add support for DynamicLinkerLabels and PIC base labels - for use inside the NCG.
      needsCDecl: Case alternative labels now need C decls, see the codeGen/CgInfoTbls.hs below for details
      
      cmm/Cmm.hs:
      Add CmmPicBaseReg (used in NCG),
      and CmmLabelDiffOff (used in NCG and for offsets in info tables)
      
      cmm/CmmParse.y:
      support offsets in info tables
      
      cmm/PprC.hs:
      support CmmLabelDiffOff
      Case alternative labels now need C decls (see the codeGen/CgInfoTbls.hs for details), so we need to pprDataExterns for info tables.
      
      cmm/PprCmm.hs:
      support CmmLabelDiffOff
      
      codeGen/CgInfoTbls.hs:
      no longer store absolute addresses in info tables, instead, we store offsets.
      Also, for vectored return points, emit the alternatives _after_ the vector table. This is to work around a limitation in Apple's as, which refuses to handle label differences where one label is at the end of a section. Emitting alternatives after vector info tables makes sure this never happens in GHC generated code. Case alternatives now require prototypes in hc code, though (see changes in PprC.hs, CLabel.hs).
      
      main/CmdLineOpts.lhs:
      Add a new option, -fPIC.
      
      main/DriverFlags.hs:
      Pass the correct options for PIC to gcc, depending on the platform. Only for powerpc for now.
      
      nativeGen/AsmCodeGen.hs:
      Many changes...
      Mac OS X-specific management of import stubs is no longer, it's now part of a general mechanism to handle such things for all platforms that need it (Darwin [both ppc and x86], Linux on ppc, and some platforms we don't support).
      Move cmmToCmm into its own monad which can accumulate a list of imported symbols. Make it call cmmMakeDynamicReference at the right places.
      
      nativeGen/MachCodeGen.hs:
      nativeGen/MachInstrs.hs:
      nativeGen/MachRegs.lhs:
      nativeGen/PprMach.hs:
      nativeGen/RegAllocInfo.hs:
      Too many changes to enumerate here, PowerPC specific.
      
      nativeGen/NCGMonad.hs:
      NatM still tracks imported symbols, as more labels can be created during code generation (float literals, jump tables; on some platforms all data access has to go through the dynamic linking mechanism).
      
      driver/mangler/ghc-asm.lprl:
      Mangle absolute addresses in info tables to offsets.
      Correctly pass through GCC-generated PIC for Mac OS X and powerpc linux.
      
      includes/Cmm.h:
      includes/InfoTables.h:
      includes/Storage.h:
      includes/mkDerivedConstants.c:
      rts/GC.c:
      rts/GCCompact.c:
      rts/HeapStackCheck.cmm:
      rts/Printer.c:
      rts/RetainerProfile.c:
      rts/Sanity.c:
      Adapt to the fact that info tables now contain offsets.
      
      rts/Linker.c:
      Mac-specific: change machoInitSymbolsWithoutUnderscore to support PIC.

      Check for shell scripts first - they don't exist on my Windows nightly build.

      Need suffix.mk, otherwise .hc bootstrapping dies in ghc/compiler, with
      "No rule to make target Foo.o" error.
