      Use Cabal directly in place of ghc-cabal + make build root configurable (#531) · 3a68f11c

      * Use Cabal directly in place of ghc-cabal; make build root configurable.
      This commit implements two significant changes (that were not easy to
      - Don't use ghc-cabal anymore for getting information about Haskell packages.
        We now instead directly use Cabal-the-library.
      - Make the build root configurable. This effectively gets rid of the inplace
        logic and allows us to place _all_ build artefacts in some directory of
        our choice, by passing '--build-root <some path>' to hadrian.
      The code for this was mostly taken from #445.

      * address more feedback
      * ConfiguredCabal -> PackageData, more comments, more feedback addressed
      * make the complete stage 2 build the default
      * use a dummy package instead of base in Rules.hs
      * update CI scripts
      * attempt at fixing hadrian's -c option
      * .travis.yml: use -c everywhere again
      * travis: back to explicit './boot && ./configure'
      * update README.md and doc/user-settings.md to reflect configurable build root
