              Re-do kind inference (again)
         [WARNING: interface file binary representation has
         (as usual) changed slightly; recompile your libraries!]
      Inspired by the lambda-cube, for some time GHC has used
      	type Kind = Type
      That is, kinds were represented by the same data type as types.
      But GHC also supports unboxed types and unboxed tuples, and these
      complicate the kind system by requiring a sub-kind relationship.
      Notably, an unboxed tuple is acceptable as the *result* of a
      function but not as an *argument*.  So we have the following setup:
      		/ \
      	       /   \
      	      ??   (#)
      	     /  \
                  *   #
      where	*    [LiftedTypeKind]   means a lifted type
      	#    [UnliftedTypeKind] means an unlifted type
      	(#)  [UbxTupleKind]     means unboxed tuple
      	??   [ArgTypeKind]      is the lub of *,#
      	?    [OpenTypeKind]	means any type at all
      In particular:
        error :: forall a:?. String -> a
        (->)  :: ?? -> ? -> *
        (\(x::t) -> ...)	Here t::?? (i.e. not unboxed tuple)
      All this has beome rather difficult to accommodate with Kind=Type, so this
      commit splits the two.
        * Kind is a distinct type, defined in types/Kind.lhs
        * IfaceType.IfaceKind disappears: we just re-use Kind.Kind
        * TcUnify.unifyKind is a distinct unifier for kinds
        * TyCon no longer needs KindCon and SuperKindCon variants
        * TcUnify.zapExpectedType takes an expected Kind now, so that
          in TcPat.tcMonoPatBndr we can express that the bound variable
          must have an argTypeKind (??).
      The big change is really that kind inference is much more systematic and
      well behaved.  In particular, a kind variable can unify only with a
      "simple kind", which is built from * and (->).  This deals neatly
      with awkward questions about how we can combine sub-kinding with type
      Lots of small consequential changes, especially to the kind-checking
      plumbing in TcTyClsDecls.  (We played a bit fast and loose before, and
      now we have to be more honest, in particular about how kind inference
      works for type synonyms.  They can have kinds like (* -> #), so
      This cures two long-standing SourceForge bugs
      * 753777 (tcfail115.hs), which used erroneously to pass,
        but crashed in the code generator
            type T a = Int -> (# Int, Int #)
            f :: T a -> T a
            f t = \x -> case t x of r -> r
      * 753780 (tc167.hs), which used erroneously to fail
            f :: (->) Int# Int#
      Still, the result is not entirely satisfactory.  In particular
      * The error message from tcfail115 is pretty obscure
      * SourceForge bug 807249 (Instance match failure on openTypeKind)
        is not fixed.  Alas.

      Fix threaded RTS problem that is currently causing the conc007 test to
      loop indefinitely.  Comment from the source regarding this change:
      /* Major bogosity:
       * In the threaded RTS, we can't set the virtual timer because the
       * thread which has the virtual timer might be sitting waiting for a
       * capability, and the virtual timer only ticks in CPU time.
       * So, possible solutions:
       * (1) tick in realtime.  Not very good, because this ticker is used for
       *     profiling, and this will give us unreliable time profiling
       *     results.  Furthermore, this requires picking a single OS thread
       *     to be the timekeeper, which is a bad idea because the thread in
       *     question might just be making a temporary call into Haskell land.
       * (2) save/restore the virtual timer around excursions into STG land.
       *     Sounds great, but I tried it and the resolution of the virtual timer
       *     isn't good enough (on Linux) - most of our excursions fall
       *     within the timer's resolution and we never make any progress.
       * (3) have a virtual timer in every OS thread.  Might be reasonable,
       *     because most of the time there is only ever one of these
       *     threads running, so it approximates a single virtual timer.
       *     But still quite bogus (and I got crashes when I tried this).
       * For now, we're using (1), but this needs a better solution. --SDM

        Precise locations for duplicate imports
      As a displacment activity I added reporting for duplicate imports
      And more precise locations for the imports themselves.  For example:
        module T where
        import Maybe (isJust,isJust)
        import Maybe (isJust)
          Warning: `isJust' is imported more than once:
      	       imported from Maybe at Foo.hs:4:16-21
      	       imported from Maybe at Foo.hs:3:23-28
      	       imported from Maybe at Foo.hs:3:16-21

        Gate in a few more instance decls
      When we have
      	instance T a where...
      we need to suck in the instance decl rather more aggressively than we
      were.  (A case I hadn't thought of because it only happens with
      undecideable instances.)

        Fix a subtle loop in the context-reduction machinery
      This bug was provoked by a recent change: when trying to prove
      a constraint C, TcSimplify.reduce now adds C to the database before
      trying to prove C, thus building recursive dictionaries.
      Two bugs
      a) If we add C's superclasses (which we were) we can now build a
         bogusly-recursive dictionary (see Note [SUPERCLASS-LOOP]).
         Solution: in reduce, add C only (via addIrred NoSCs) and then
         later use addWanted to add its definition plus SCs.
      b) Since we can have recursive definitions, the superclass-loop
         handling machinery (findAllDeps) must carry its visited-set
         with it (which it was not doing before)
      The main file is TcSimplify; but I modified a bunch of others to
      take advantage of new function extendVarSetList

      Fix a deadlock: an OS thread returning from a C call could enter
      grabReturnCapability, grabbing the capability that was in the process
      of being passed to another thread via passCapability.  This leads to a
      deadlock shortly afterward, because the passCapability flag is still
      set, so a normal worker won't pick up the capability when it is
      Fix (not sure if this is the best fix, though): don't grab the
      capability in grabReturnCapability() if passCapabilty is set.

      Fix bogosity in implementation of ACQUIRE_LOCK/RELEASE_LOCK on Win32.
      These functions were essentially doing nothing, due to a missing
      dereference on the argument.
      I've rewritten them as inlines (to catch type errors) and added some
      checking of the return values, which should help catch errors like
      this in the future.
