Include the way string in the file name for dump files.
When compiling ghc the dump files for profiled and non-profiled artefacts used to always overwrite each other. This is tragic when you need the dump for the way that has been written.
I wrote up a patch that now by default includes the way in the file names for dump files. E.g.
The only thing I'm not sure about is weither or not it should be on by default.
I lean towards yes because:
- It minimizes risk of someone looking at the "wrong" dump file without realizing.
- If someone forgets to add the flag they don't have to restart their build.
