      Allow full constraint solving under a for-all (Trac #5595) · 2e6dcdf7
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      The main idea is that when we unify
          forall a. t1  ~  forall a. t2
      we get constraints from unifying t1~t2 that mention a.
      We are producing a coercion witnessing the equivalence of
      the for-alls, and inside *that* coercion we need bindings
      for the solved constraints arising from t1~t2.
      
      We didn't have way to do this before.  The big change is
      that here's a new type TcEvidence.TcCoercion, which is
      much like Coercion.Coercion except that there's a slot
      for TcEvBinds in it.
      
      This has a wave of follow-on changes. Not deep but broad.
      
      * New module TcEvidence, which now contains the HsWrapper
        TcEvBinds, EvTerm etc types that used to be in HsBinds
      
      * The typechecker works exclusively in terms of TcCoercion.
      
      * The desugarer converts TcCoercion to Coercion
      
      * The main payload is in TcUnify.unifySigmaTy. This is the
        function that had a gross hack before, but is now beautiful.
      
      * LCoercion is gone!  Hooray.
      
      Many many fiddly changes in conssequence.  But it's nice.

      0) Typo in panic message.
      1) prioritization of equalities over family equalities in the worklists.
      2) rewriting of inert substitutions and solveds on-the-spot instead of
         kicking them out in the inerts. This required a monadic map over
         substitutions hence the modifications in UniqFM.
      3) Just comments and removing stale commented code.
      
      4) Useful SCC for simplifyInfer.
      
      5) Making CoreStats outputable.

      New kind-polymorphic core · 09015be8
      dreixel authored
      This big patch implements a kind-polymorphic core for GHC. The current
      implementation focuses on making sure that all kind-monomorphic programs still
      work in the new core; it is not yet guaranteed that kind-polymorphic programs
      (using the new -XPolyKinds flag) will work.

      Overhaul of infrastructure for profiling, coverage (HPC) and breakpoints · 7bb0447d
      Simon Marlow authored
      User visible changes
      ====================
      
      Profilng
      --------
      
      Flags renamed (the old ones are still accepted for now):
      
        OLD            NEW
        ---------      ------------
        -auto-all      -fprof-auto
        -auto          -fprof-exported
        -caf-all       -fprof-cafs
      
      New flags:
      
        -fprof-auto              Annotates all bindings (not just top-level
                                 ones) with SCCs
      
        -fprof-top               Annotates just top-level bindings with SCCs
      
        -fprof-exported          Annotates just exported bindings with SCCs
      
        -fprof-no-count-entries  Do not maintain entry counts when profiling
                                 (can make profiled code go faster; useful with
                                 heap profiling where entry counts are not used)
      
      Cost-centre stacks have a new semantics, which should in most cases
      result in more useful and intuitive profiles.  If you find this not to
      be the case, please let me know.  This is the area where I have been
      experimenting most, and the current solution is probably not the
      final version, however it does address all the outstanding bugs and
      seems to be better than GHC 7.2.
      
      Stack traces
      ------------
      
      +RTS -xc now gives more information.  If the exception originates from
      a CAF (as is common, because GHC tends to lift exceptions out to the
      top-level), then the RTS walks up the stack and reports the stack in
      the enclosing update frame(s).
      
      Result: +RTS -xc is much more useful now - but you still have to
      compile for profiling to get it.  I've played around a little with
      adding 'head []' to GHC itself, and +RTS -xc does pinpoint the problem
      quite accurately.
      
      I plan to add more facilities for stack tracing (e.g. in GHCi) in the
      future.
      
      Coverage (HPC)
      --------------
      
       * derived instances are now coloured yellow if they weren't used
       * likewise record field names
       * entry counts are more accurate (hpc --fun-entry-count)
       * tab width is now correct (markup was previously off in source with
         tabs)
      
      Internal changes
      ================
      
      In Core, the Note constructor has been replaced by
      
              Tick (Tickish b) (Expr b)
      
      which is used to represent all the kinds of source annotation we
      support: profiling SCCs, HPC ticks, and GHCi breakpoints.
      
      Depending on the properties of the Tickish, different transformations
      apply to Tick.  See CoreUtils.mkTick for details.
      
      Tickets
      =======
      
      This commit closes the following tickets, test cases to follow:
      
        - Close #2552: not a bug, but the behaviour is now more intuitive
          (test is T2552)
      
        - Close #680 (test is T680)
      
        - Close #1531 (test is result001)
      
        - Close #949 (test is T949)

          version of vector-space package)

      Add support for all top-level declarations to GHCi · 3db75724
      Simon Marlow authored
        This is work mostly done by Daniel Winograd-Cort during his
        internship at MSR Cambridge, with some further refactoring by me.
      
      This commit adds support to GHCi for most top-level declarations that
      can be used in Haskell source files.  Class, data, newtype, type,
      instance are all supported, as are Type Family-related declarations.
      
      The current set of declarations are shown by :show bindings.  As with
      variable bindings, entities bound by newer declarations shadow earlier
      ones.
      
      Tests are in testsuite/tests/ghci/scripts/ghci039--ghci054.
      Documentation to follow.

      Implement -XConstraintKind · 9729fe7c
      batterseapower authored
      Basically as documented in http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/KindFact,
      this patch adds a new kind Constraint such that:
      
        Show :: * -> Constraint
        (?x::Int) :: Constraint
        (Int ~ a) :: Constraint
      
      And you can write *any* type with kind Constraint to the left of (=>):
      even if that type is a type synonym, type variable, indexed type or so on.
      
      The following (somewhat related) changes are also made:
       1. We now box equality evidence. This is required because we want
          to give (Int ~ a) the *lifted* kind Constraint
       2. For similar reasons, implicit parameters can now only be of
          a lifted kind. (?x::Int#) => ty is now ruled out
       3. Implicit parameter constraints are now allowed in superclasses
          and instance contexts (this just falls out as OK with the new
          constraint solver)
      
      Internally the following major changes were made:
       1. There is now no PredTy in the Type data type. Instead
          GHC checks the kind of a type to figure out if it is a predicate
       2. There is now no AClass TyThing: we represent classes as TyThings
          just as a ATyCon (classes had TyCons anyway)
       3. What used to be (~) is now pretty-printed as (~#). The box
          constructor EqBox :: (a ~# b) -> (a ~ b)
       4. The type LCoercion is used internally in the constraint solver
          and type checker to represent coercions with free variables
          of type (a ~ b) rather than (a ~# b)

      Simplify the treatment of RULES in OccurAnal · f88b20f4
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      I realised that my recently-added cunning stuff about
      RULES for imported Ids was simply wrong, so this patch
      removes it.   See Note [Rules for imported functions],
      which explains it all.
      
      This patch also does quite a bit of refactoring in
      the treatment of loop breakers.

      Fix #481: use a safe recompilation check when Template Haskell is · 48bc81ad
      Simon Marlow authored
      being used.
      
      We now track whether a module used any TH splices in the ModIface (and
      at compile time in the TcGblEnv and ModGuts).  If a module used TH
      splices last time it was compiled, then we ignore the results of the
      normal recompilation check and recompile anyway, *unless* the module
      is "stable" - that is, none of its dependencies (direct or indirect)
      have changed.  The stability test is pretty important - otherwise ghc
      --make would always recompile TH modules even if nothing at all had
      changed, but it does require some extra plumbing to get this
      information from GhcMake into HscMain.

      This BIG PATCH contains most of the work for the New Coercion Representation · fdf86568
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      See the paper "Practical aspects of evidence based compilation in System FC"
      
      * Coercion becomes a data type, distinct from Type
      
      * Coercions become value-level things, rather than type-level things,
        (although the value is zero bits wide, like the State token)
        A consequence is that a coerion abstraction increases the arity by 1
        (just like a dictionary abstraction)
      
      * There is a new constructor in CoreExpr, namely Coercion, to inject
        coercions into terms

      Change the way module initialisation is done (#3252, #4417) · a52ff761
      Simon Marlow authored
      Previously the code generator generated small code fragments labelled
      with __stginit_M for each module M, and these performed whatever
      initialisation was necessary for that module and recursively invoked
      the initialisation functions for imported modules.  This appraoch had
      drawbacks:
      
       - FFI users had to call hs_add_root() to ensure the correct
         initialisation routines were called.  This is a non-standard,
         and ugly, API.
      
       - unless we were using -split-objs, the __stginit dependencies would
         entail linking the whole transitive closure of modules imported,
         whether they were actually used or not.  In an extreme case (#4387,
         #4417), a module from GHC might be imported for use in Template
         Haskell or an annotation, and that would force the whole of GHC to
         be needlessly linked into the final executable.
      
      So now instead we do our initialisation with C functions marked with
      __attribute__((constructor)), which are automatically invoked at
      program startup time (or DSO load-time).  The C initialisers are
      emitted into the stub.c file.  This means that every time we compile
      with -prof or -hpc, we now get a stub file, but thanks to #3687 that
      is now invisible to the user.
      
      There are some refactorings in the RTS (particularly for HPC) to
      handle the fact that initialisers now get run earlier than they did
      before.
      
      The __stginit symbols are still generated, and the hs_add_root()
      function still exists (but does nothing), for backwards compatibility.

      Added a VECTORISE pragma · f2aaae97
      chak@cse.unsw.edu.au. authored
      - Added a pragma {-# VECTORISE var = exp #-} that prevents
        the vectoriser from vectorising the definition of 'var'.
        Instead it uses the binding '$v_var = exp' to vectorise
        'var'.  The vectoriser checks that the Core type of 'exp'
        matches the vectorised Core type of 'var'.  (It would be
        quite complicated to perform that check in the type checker
        as the vectorisation of a type needs the state of the VM
        monad.)
      - Added parts of a related VECTORISE SCALAR pragma
      - Documented -ddump-vect
      - Added -ddump-vt-trace
