      Introduce tcTypeKind, and use it · 03d48526
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      In the type checker Constraint and * are distinct; and the function
      that takes the kind of a type should respect that distinction
      (Trac #15971).
      
      This patch implements the change:
      
      * Introduce Type.tcTypeKind, and use it throughout the type
        inference engine
      
      * Add new Note [Kinding rules for types] for the kinding
        rules, especially for foralls.
      
      * Redefine
          isPredTy ty = tcIsConstraintKind (tcTypeKind ty)
        (it had a much more complicated definition before)
      
      Some miscellaneous refactoring
      
      * Get rid of TyCoRep.isTYPE, Kind.isTYPEApp,
        in favour of TyCoRep.kindRep, kindRep_maybe
      
      * Rename Type.getRuntimeRepFromKind_maybe
        to getRuntimeRep_maybe
      
      I did some spot-checks on compiler perf, and it really doesn't
      budge (as expected).

      Taming the Kind Inference Monster · 2257a86d
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      My original goal was (Trac #15809) to move towards using level numbers
      as the basis for deciding which type variables to generalise, rather
      than searching for the free varaibles of the environment.  However
      it has turned into a truly major refactoring of the kind inference
      engine.
      
      Let's deal with the level-numbers part first:
      
      * Augment quantifyTyVars to calculate the type variables to
        quantify using level numbers, and compare the result with
        the existing approach.  That is; no change in behaviour,
        just a WARNing if the two approaches give different answers.
      
      * To do this I had to get the level number right when calling
        quantifyTyVars, and this entailed a bit of care, especially
        in the code for kind-checking type declarations.
      
      * However, on the way I was able to eliminate or simplify
        a number of calls to solveEqualities.
      
      This work is incomplete: I'm not /using/ level numbers yet.
      When I subsequently get rid of any remaining WARNings in
      quantifyTyVars, that the level-number answers differ from
      the current answers, then I can rip out the current
      "free vars of the environment" stuff.
      
      Anyway, this led me into deep dive into kind inference for type and
      class declarations, which is an increasingly soggy part of GHC.
      Richard already did some good work recently in

         Date:   Thu Sep 13 09:56:02 2018 +0200
      
          Finish fix for #14880.
      
          The real change that fixes the ticket is described in
          Note [Naughty quantification candidates] in TcMType.
      
      but I kept turning over stones. So this patch has ended up
      with a pretty significant refactoring of that code too.
      
      Kind inference for types and classes
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      
      * Major refactoring in the way we generalise the inferred kind of
        a TyCon, in kcTyClGroup.  Indeed, I made it into a new top-level
        function, generaliseTcTyCon.  Plus a new Note to explain it
        Note [Inferring kinds for type declarations].
      
      * We decided (Trac #15592) not to treat class type variables specially
        when dealing with Inferred/Specified/Required for associated types.
        That simplifies things quite a bit. I also rewrote
        Note [Required, Specified, and Inferred for types]
      
      * Major refactoring of the crucial function kcLHsQTyVars:
        I split it into
             kcLHsQTyVars_Cusk  and  kcLHsQTyVars_NonCusk
        because the two are really quite different. The CUSK case is
        almost entirely rewritten, and is much easier because of our new
        decision not to treat the class variables specially
      
      * I moved all the error checks from tcTyClTyVars (which was a bizarre
        place for it) into generaliseTcTyCon and/or the CUSK case of
        kcLHsQTyVars.  Now tcTyClTyVars is extremely simple.
      
      * I got rid of all the all the subtleties in tcImplicitTKBndrs. Indeed
        now there is no difference between tcImplicitTKBndrs and
        kcImplicitTKBndrs; there is now a single bindImplicitTKBndrs.
        Same for kc/tcExplicitTKBndrs.  None of them monkey with level
        numbers, nor build implication constraints.  scopeTyVars is gone
        entirely, as is kcLHsQTyVarBndrs. It's vastly simpler.
      
        I found I could get rid of kcLHsQTyVarBndrs entirely, in favour of
        the bnew bindExplicitTKBndrs.
      
      Quantification
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      * I now deal with the "naughty quantification candidates"
        of the previous patch in candidateQTyVars, rather than in
        quantifyTyVars; see Note [Naughty quantification candidates]
        in TcMType.
      
        I also killed off closeOverKindsCQTvs in favour of the same
        strategy that we use for tyCoVarsOfType: namely, close over kinds
        at the occurrences.
      
        And candidateQTyVars no longer needs a gbl_tvs argument.
      
      * Passing the ContextKind, rather than the expected kind itself,
        to tc_hs_sig_type_and_gen makes it easy to allocate the expected
        result kind (when we are in inference mode) at the right level.
      
      Type families
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      * I did a major rewrite of the impenetrable tcFamTyPats. The result
        is vastly more comprehensible.
      
      * I got rid of kcDataDefn entirely, quite a big function.
      
      * I re-did the way that checkConsistentFamInst works, so
        that it allows alpha-renaming of invisible arguments.
      
      * The interaction of kind signatures and family instances is tricky.
          Type families: see Note [Apparently-nullary families]
          Data families: see Note [Result kind signature for a data family instance]
                         and Note [Eta-reduction for data families]
      
      * The consistent instantation of an associated type family is tricky.
        See Note [Checking consistent instantiation] and
            Note [Matching in the consistent-instantation check]
        in TcTyClsDecls.  It's now checked in TcTyClsDecls because that is
        when we have the relevant info to hand.
      
      * I got tired of the compromises in etaExpandFamInst, so I did the
        job properly by adding a field cab_eta_tvs to CoAxBranch.
        See Coercion.etaExpandCoAxBranch.
      
      tcInferApps and friends
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      * I got rid of the mysterious and horrible ClsInstInfo argument
        to tcInferApps, checkExpectedKindX, and various checkValid
        functions.  It was horrible!
      
      * I got rid of [Type] result of tcInferApps.  This list was used
        only in tcFamTyPats, when checking the LHS of a type instance;
        and if there is a cast in the middle, the list is meaningless.
        So I made tcInferApps simpler, and moved the complexity
        (not much) to tcInferApps.
      
        Result: tcInferApps is now pretty comprehensible again.
      
      * I refactored the many function in TcMType that instantiate skolems.
      
      Smaller things
      
      * I rejigged the error message in checkValidTelescope; I think it's
        quite a bit better now.
      
      * checkValidType was not rejecting constraints in a kind signature
           forall (a :: Eq b => blah). blah2
        That led to further errors when we then do an ambiguity check.
        So I make checkValidType reject it more aggressively.
      
      * I killed off quantifyConDecl, instead calling kindGeneralize
        directly.
      
      * I fixed an outright bug in tyCoVarsOfImplic, where we were not
        colleting the tyvar of the kind of the skolems
      
      * Renamed ClsInstInfo to AssocInstInfo, and made it into its
        own data type
      
      * Some fiddling around with pretty-printing of family
        instances which was trickier than I thought.  I wanted
        wildcards to print as plain "_" in user messages, although
        they each need a unique identity in the CoAxBranch.
      
      Some other oddments
      
      * Refactoring around the trace messages from reportUnsolved.
      * A bit of extra tc-tracing in TcHsSyn.commitFlexi
      
      This patch fixes a raft of bugs, and includes tests for them.

      Finish fix for #14880. · 5e45ad10
      Tobias Dammers authored
      The real change that fixes the ticket is described in
      Note [Naughty quantification candidates] in TcMType.
      
      Fixing this required reworking candidateQTyVarsOfType, the function
      that extracts free variables as candidates for quantification.
      One consequence is that we now must be more careful when quantifying:
      any skolems around must be quantified manually, and quantifyTyVars
      will now only quantify over metavariables. This makes good sense,
      as skolems are generally user-written and are listed in the AST.
      
      As a bonus, we now have more control over the ordering of such
      skolems.
      
      Along the way, this commit fixes #15711 and refines the fix
      to #14552 (by accepted a program that was previously rejected,
      as we can now accept that program by zapping variables to Any).
      
      This commit also does a fair amount of rejiggering kind inference
      of datatypes. Notably, we now can skip the generalization step
      in kcTyClGroup for types with CUSKs, because we get the
      kind right the first time. This commit also thus fixes #15743 and
       #15592, which both concern datatype kind generalisation.
      (#15591 is also very relevant.) For this aspect of the commit, see
      Note [Required, Specified, and Inferred in types] in TcTyClsDecls.

      Distinguish Inferred from Specified tyvars · 2f09753f
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      In a declared type we need to distinguish between Inferred
      and Specified type variables. This was exposed by Trac #15592.
      
      See Note [Work out final tyConBinders] in TcTyClsDecls.
      
      I had to change the definition of HasField in GHC.Records to
         class HasField x r a | x r -> a where
      so as to have an /inferred/ kind argument rather than a
      specfied one.  So

      Quantify class variables first in associated families' kinds · a57fa247
      Ryan Scott authored
      Summary:
      Previously, `kcLHsQTyVars` would always quantify class-bound
      variables invisibly in the kinds of associated types, resulting in
      #15591. We counteract this by explicitly passing the class-bound
      variables to `kcLHsQTyVars` and quantifying over the ones that are
      mentioned in the associated type such that (1) they are specified,
      and (2) they come before other kind variables.
      See `Note [Kind variable ordering for associated types]`.

      if it derived an instance for a class with an ambiguous type variable
      in the class head, such as the example in #15637. The solution is
      straightforward: simply instantiate all variables bound by the class

      Coercion Quantification · ea5ade34
      Ningning Xie authored
      This patch corresponds to #15497.
      
      According to https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/DependentHaskell/Phase2,
       we would like to have coercion quantifications back. This will
      allow us to migrate (~#) to be homogeneous, instead of its current
      heterogeneous definition. This patch is (lots of) plumbing only. There
      should be no user-visible effects.
      
      An overview of changes:
      
      - Both `ForAllTy` and `ForAllCo` can quantify over coercion variables,
      but only in *Core*. All relevant functions are updated accordingly.
      - Small changes that should be irrelevant to the main task:
          1. removed dead code `mkTransAppCo` in Coercion
          2. removed out-dated Note Computing a coercion kind and
             roles in Coercion
          3. Added `Eq4` in Note Respecting definitional equality in
             TyCoRep, and updated `mkCastTy` accordingly.
          4. Various updates and corrections of notes and typos.
      - Haddock submodule needs to be changed too.

      Remove knot-tying bug in TcHsSyn.zonkTyVarOcc · 565ef4cc
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      There was a subtle knot-tying bug in TcHsSyn.zonkTyVarOcc, revealed
      in Trac #15552.
      
      I fixed it by
      
      * Eliminating the short-circuiting optimisation in zonkTyVarOcc,
        instead adding a finite map to get sharing of zonked unification
        variables.
      
        See Note [Sharing when zonking to Type] in TcHsSyn
      
      * On the way I /added/ the short-circuiting optimisation to
        TcMType.zonkTcTyVar, which has no such problem.  This turned
        out (based on non-systematic measurements) to be a modest win.
      
        See Note [Sharing in zonking] in TcMType
      
      On the way I renamed some of the functions in TcHsSyn:
      
      * Ones ending in "X" (like zonkTcTypeToTypeX) take a ZonkEnv
      
      * Ones that do not end in "x" (like zonkTcTypeToType), don't.
        Instead they whiz up an empty ZonkEnv.

      Add a solveEqualities to tcClassDecl1 · 43b08cfb
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      Trac #15505 showed that, when we have a type error, we
      could have an unfilled-in coercion hole.  We don't want an
      assertion error in that case.
      
      The underlying cause is that tcClassDecl1 should call
      solveEqualities to fully solve all top-level equalities
      (or fail in the attempt).
      
      I also refactored the ClassDecl case for tcTyClDecl1 into
      a new function tcClassDecl1.  That makes it symmetrical
      with the others.

      because since #15050, these are no longer used in pattern SIGnatures,
      but still in other places where meta-variables should only be unified
      with TYpe VARiables.
      
      I also found mentions of `SigTv` in parts of the renamer and desugarer
      that do not seem to directly relate to `SigTv` as used in the type
      checker, but rather to uses of `forall a.` in type signatures. I renamed
      these to `ScopedTv`.

      Remove decideKindGeneralisationPlan · c955a514
      Richard Eisenberg authored
      TypeInType came with a new function: decideKindGeneralisationPlan.
      This type-level counterpart to the term-level decideGeneralisationPlan
      chose whether or not a kind should be generalized. The thinking was
      that if `let` should not be generalized, then kinds shouldn't either
      (under the same circumstances around -XMonoLocalBinds).
      
      However, this is too conservative -- the situation described in the
      motivation for "let should be be generalized" does not occur in types.
      
      This commit thus removes decideKindGeneralisationPlan, always
      generalizing.
      
      One consequence is that tc_hs_sig_type_and_gen no longer calls
      solveEqualities, which reports all unsolved constraints, instead
      relying on the solveLocalEqualities in tcImplicitTKBndrs. An effect
      of this is that reporing kind errors gets delayed more frequently.
      This seems to be a net benefit in error reporting; often, alongside
      a kind error, the type error is now reported (and users might find
      type errors easier to understand).
      
      Some of these errors ended up at the top level, where it was
      discovered that the GlobalRdrEnv containing the definitions in the
      local module was not in the TcGblEnv, and thus errors were reported
      with qualified names unnecessarily. This commit rejiggers some of
      the logic around captureTopConstraints accordingly.
      
      One error message (typecheck/should_fail/T1633)
      is a regression, mentioning the name of a default method. However,
      that problem is already reported as #10087, its solution is far from
      clear, and so I'm not addressing it here.
      
      This commit fixes #15141. As it's an internal refactor, there is
      no concrete test case for it.
      
      Along the way, we no longer need the hsib_closed field of
      HsImplicitBndrs (it was used only in decideKindGeneralisationPlan)
      and so it's been removed, simplifying the datatype structure.
      
      Along the way, I removed code in the validity checker that looks
      at coercions. This isn't related to this patch, really (though
      it was, at one point), but it's an improvement, so I kept it.
      
      This updates the haddock submodule.

      Remove the type-checking knot. · f8618a9b
      Richard Eisenberg authored
      Bug #15380 hangs because a knot-tied TyCon ended up in a kind.
      Looking at the code in tcInferApps, I'm amazed this hasn't happened
      before! I couldn't think of a good way to fix it (with dependent
      types, we can't really keep types out of kinds, after all), so
      I just went ahead and removed the knot.
      
      This was remarkably easy to do. In tcTyVar, when we find a TcTyCon,
      just use it. (Previously, we looked up the knot-tied TyCon and used
      that.) Then, during the final zonk, replace TcTyCons with the real,
      full-blooded TyCons in the global environment. It's all very easy.
      
      The new bit is explained in the existing
      Note [Type checking recursive type and class declarations]
      in TcTyClsDecls.
      
      Naturally, I removed various references to the knot and the
      zonkTcTypeInKnot (and related) functions. Now, we can print types
      during type checking with abandon!
      
      NB: There is a teensy error message regression with this patch,
      around the ordering of quantified type variables. This ordering
      problem is fixed (I believe) with the patch for #14880. The ordering
      affects only internal variables that cannot be instantiated with
      any kind of visible type application.
      
      There is also a teensy regression around the printing of types
      in TH splices. I think this is really a TH bug and will file
      separately.

      Treat isConstraintKind more consistently · c5d31df7
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      It turned out that we were not being consistent
      about our use of isConstraintKind.
      
      It's delicate, because the typechecker treats Constraint and Type as
      /distinct/, whereas they are the /same/ in the rest of the compiler
      (Trac #11715).
      
      And had it wrong, which led to Trac #15412.  This patch does the
      following:
      
      * Rename isConstraintKind      to tcIsConstraintKind
               returnsConstraintKind to tcReturnsConstraintKind
        to emphasise that they use the 'tcView' view of types.
      
      * Move these functions, and some related ones (tcIsLiftedTypeKind),
        from Kind.hs, to group together in Type.hs, alongside isPredTy.
      
      It feels very unsatisfactory that these 'tcX' functions live in Type,
      but it happens because isPredTy is called later in the compiler
      too.  But it's a consequence of the 'Constraint vs Type' dilemma.

      More refactoring in TcValidity · fd0f0334
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This patch responds to Trac #15334 by making it an error to
      write an instance declaration for a tuple constraint like
      (Eq [a], Show [a]).
      
      I then discovered that instance validity checking was
      scattered betweeen TcInstDcls and TcValidity, so I took
      the time to bring it all together, into
        TcValidity.checkValidInstHead
      
      In doing so I discovered that there are lot of special
      cases.   I have not changed them, but at least they are
      all laid out clearly now.

      Refactor the kind-checking of tyvar binders · 9fc40c73
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      The refactoring here is driven by the ghastly mess described in
      comment:24 of Trac #1520.  The overall goal is to simplify the
      kind-checking of typev-variable binders, and in particular to narrow
      the use of the "in-scope tyvar binder" stuff,
      which is needed only for associated types: see the new
      Note [Kind-checking tyvar binders for associated types] in TcHsType.
      
      Now
      
      * The "in-scope tyvar binder" stuff is done only in
           - kcLHsQTyVars, which is used for the LHsQTyVars of a
             data/newtype, or type family declaration.
      
           - tcFamTyPats, which is used for associated family instances;
             it now calls tcImplicitQTKBndrs, which in turn usese
             newFlexiKindedQTyVar
      
      * tcExpicitTKBndrs (which is used only for function signatures,
        data con signatures, pattern synonym signatures, and expression
        type signatures) now does not go via the "in-scope tyvar binder"
        stuff at all.
      
      While I'm still not happy with all this code, the code is generally
      simpler, and I think this is a useful step forward. It does cure
      the problem too.
      
      (It's hard to trigger the problem in vanilla Haskell code, because
      the renamer would normally use different names for nested binders,
      so I can't offer a test.)

      Make better "fake tycons" in error recovery · 2f6069cc
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      Consider (Trac #15215)
        data T a = MkT ...
        data S a = ...T...MkT....
      
      If there is an error in the definition of 'T' we add a
      "fake type constructor" to the type environment, so that we
      can continue to typecheck 'S'.  But we /were not/ adding
      a fake anything for 'MkT' and so there was an internal
      error when we met 'MkT' in the body of 'S'.
      
      The fix is to add fake tycons for all the 'implicits' of 'T'.
      This is done by mk_fake_tc in TcTyClsDecls.checkValidTyCl,
      which now returns a /list/ of TyCons rather than just one.
      
      On the way I did some refactoring:
      
      * Rename TcTyDecls.tcAddImplicits to tcAddTyConsToGblEnv
        and make it /include/ the TyCons themeselves as well
        as their implicits
      
      * Some incidental refactoring about tcRecSelBinds. The main
        thing is that I've avoided creating a HsValBinds that we
        immediately decompose.  That meant moving some deck chairs
        around.
      
      NB: The new error message for the regression test T15215
      has the opaque error "Illegal constraint in a type:", flagged
      in Trac #14845.  But that's the fault of the latter ticket.
      The fix here not to blame.

      Embrace -XTypeInType, add -XStarIsType · d650729f
      Vladislav Zavialov authored
      Summary:
      Implement the "Embrace Type :: Type" GHC proposal,
      .../ghc-proposals/blob/master/proposals/0020-no-type-in-type.rst
      
      GHC 8.0 included a major change to GHC's type system: the Type :: Type
      axiom. Though casual users were protected from this by hiding its
      features behind the -XTypeInType extension, all programs written in GHC
      8+ have the axiom behind the scenes. In order to preserve backward
      compatibility, various legacy features were left unchanged. For example,
      with -XDataKinds but not -XTypeInType, GADTs could not be used in types.
      Now these restrictions are lifted and -XTypeInType becomes a redundant
      flag that will be eventually deprecated.
      
      * Incorporate the features currently in -XTypeInType into the
        -XPolyKinds and -XDataKinds extensions.
      * Introduce a new extension -XStarIsType to control how to parse * in
        code and whether to print it in error messages.

      Track type variable scope more carefully. · faec8d35
      Richard Eisenberg authored
      The main job of this commit is to track more accurately the scope
      of tyvars introduced by user-written foralls. For example, it would
      be to have something like this:
      
        forall a. Int -> (forall k (b :: k). Proxy '[a, b]) -> Bool
      
      In that type, a's kind must be k, but k isn't in scope. We had a
      terrible way of doing this before (not worth repeating or describing
      here, but see the old tcImplicitTKBndrs and friends), but now
      we have a principled approach: make an Implication when kind-checking
      a forall. Doing so then hooks into the existing machinery for
      preventing skolem-escape, performing floating, etc. This also means
      that we bump the TcLevel whenever going into a forall.
      
      The new behavior is done in TcHsType.scopeTyVars, but see also
      TcHsType.tc{Im,Ex}plicitTKBndrs, which have undergone significant
      rewriting. There are several Notes near there to guide you. Of
      particular interest there is that Implication constraints can now
      have skolems that are out of order; this situation is reported in
      TcErrors.
      
      A major consequence of this is a slightly tweaked process for type-
      checking type declarations. The new Note [Use SigTvs in kind-checking
      pass] in TcTyClsDecls lays it out.
      
      The error message for dependent/should_fail/TypeSkolEscape has become
      noticeably worse. However, this is because the code in TcErrors goes to
      some length to preserve pre-8.0 error messages for kind errors. It's time
      to rip off that plaster and get rid of much of the kind-error-specific
      error messages. I tried this, and doing so led to a lovely error message
      for TypeSkolEscape. So: I'm accepting the error message quality regression
      for now, but will open up a new ticket to fix it, along with a larger
      error-message improvement I've been pondering. This applies also to
      dependent/should_fail/{BadTelescope2,T14066,T14066e}, polykinds/T11142.
      
      Other minor changes:
       - isUnliftedTypeKind didn't look for tuples and sums. It does now.
      
       - check_type used check_arg_type on both sides of an AppTy. But the left
         side of an AppTy isn't an arg, and this was causing a bad error message.
         I've changed it to use check_type on the left-hand side.
      
       - Some refactoring around when we print (TYPE blah) in error messages.
         The changes decrease the times when we do so, to good effect.
         Of course, this is still all controlled by
         -fprint-explicit-runtime-reps
      
      Fixes #14066 #14749

      Lift constructor tag allocation out of a loop · dbdf77d9
      niteria authored
      Before this change, for each constructor that we want
      to allocate a tag for we would traverse a list of all
      the constructors in a datatype to determine which tag
      a constructor should get.
      
      This is obviously quadratic and for datatypes with 10k
      constructors it actually makes a big difference.
      
      This change implements the plan outlined by @simonpj in
      https://mail.haskell.org/pipermail/ghc-devs/2017-October/014974.html
      which is basically about using a map and constructing it outside the
      loop.
      
      One place where things got a bit awkward was TysWiredIn.hs,
      it would have been possible to just assign the tags by hand, but
      that seemed error-prone to me, so I decided to go through a map
      there as well.
      
      Test Plan:
      ./validate

      as it stands, without zonking.  See Note [The well-kinded type invariant]
      in TcType.
      
      That invariant was not being upheld, which led to Trac #14174.  I fixed
      part of it, but T14174a showed that there was more.  This patch finishes
      the job.
      
      * See Note [The tcType invariant] in TcHsType, which articulates an
        invariant that was very nearly, but not quite, true.  One place that
        falisified it was the HsWildCardTy case of tc_hs_type, so I fixed that.
      
      * mkNakedCastTy now makes no attempt to eliminate casts; indeed it cannot
        lest it break Note [The well-kinded type invariant].  The prior comment
        suggested that it was crucial for performance but happily it seems not
        to be. The extra Refls are eliminated by the zonker.
      
      * I found I could tidy up TcHsType.instantiateTyN and instantiateTyUntilN
        by eliminating one of its parameters.  That led to a cascade of minor
        improvements in TcTyClsDecls. Hooray.
