The ticky-ticky profiler is a useful tool but provides little in the way of temporal resolution.
In particular, benchmarks of the non-moving garbage collector has revealed what I believe to be
a thunk leak in GHC when compiling
LicenseId module that I believe the ticky profiler
would pin-point with temporal resolution.
This patch provides said resolution by giving the RTS the ability to periodically record samples of ticky counters to the eventlog.
