      Add `-W(no-)xxx` aliases for `-f(no-)warn-xxx` flags · 2206fa8c
      quchen authored
      This also updates the user's guide to refer to the `-W`-based warning
      flags by default.
      
      Quoting the release note entry:
      
      | Warnings can now be controlled with `-W(no-)...` flags in addition to
      | the old `-f(no-)warn...` ones. This was done as the first part of a
      | rewrite of the warning system to provide better control over warnings,
      | better warning messages, and more common syntax compared to other
      | compilers. The old `-fwarn...`-based warning flags will remain
      | functional for the forseeable future.
      
      This is part of
      https://ghc.haskell.org/wiki/Design/Warnings
      and addresses #11218

      Expose enabled language extensions to TH · c1e25536
      Ben Gamari authored
      This exposes `template-haskell` functions for querying the language
      extensions which are enabled when compiling a module,
      
      - an `isExtEnabled` function to check whether an extension is enabled
      - an `extsEnabled` function to obtain a full list of enabled extensions
      
      To avoid code duplication this adds a `GHC.LanguageExtensions` module to
      `ghc-boot` and moves `DynFlags.ExtensionFlag` into it. A happy
      consequence of this is that the ungainly `DynFlags` lost around 500
      lines. Moreover, flags corresponding to language extensions are now
      clearly distinguished from other flags due to the `LangExt.*` prefix.
      
      Updates haddock submodule.
      
      This fixes #10820.

      Allow recursive (undecidable) superclasses · 6eabb6dd
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This patch fulfils the request in Trac #11067, #10318, and #10592,
      by lifting the conservative restrictions on superclass constraints.
      
      These restrictions are there (and have been since Haskell was born) to
      ensure that the transitive superclasses of a class constraint is a finite
      set.  However (a) this restriction is conservative, and can be annoying
      when there really is no recursion, and (b) sometimes genuinely recursive
      superclasses are useful (see the tickets).
      
      Dimitrios and I worked out that there is actually a relatively simple way
      to do the job. It’s described in some detail in
      
         Note [The superclass story] in TcCanonical
         Note [Expanding superclasses] in TcType
      
      In brief, the idea is to expand superclasses only finitely, but to
      iterate (using a loop that already existed) if there are more
      superclasses to explore.
      
      Other small things
      
      - I improved grouping of error messages a bit in TcErrors
      
      - I re-centred the haddock.compiler test, which was at 9.8%
        above the norm, and which this patch pushed slightly over

      DynFlags: remove Opt_Static · 6d9c18cb
      thomie authored
      There are currently 2 different ways to test for a static or dynamic
      build:
      
          * Test if WayDyn is in ways
          * Test if Opt_Static is set
      
      The problem is that these can easily go out of sync, especially when
      using the
      GHC API.
      
      This commit replaces all queries of Opt_Static with an equivalent query
      of
      WayDyn. This would have prevented bug #8294 and fixes #11154.

      a user can now say

      Add kind equalities to GHC. · 67465497
      eir@cis.upenn.edu authored
      This implements the ideas originally put forward in
      "System FC with Explicit Kind Equality" (ICFP'13).
      
      There are several noteworthy changes with this patch:
       * We now have casts in types. These change the kind
         of a type. See new constructor `CastTy`.
      
       * All types and all constructors can be promoted.
         This includes GADT constructors. GADT pattern matches
         take place in type family equations. In Core,
         types can now be applied to coercions via the
         `CoercionTy` constructor.
      
       * Coercions can now be heterogeneous, relating types
         of different kinds. A coercion proving `t1 :: k1 ~ t2 :: k2`
         proves both that `t1` and `t2` are the same and also that
         `k1` and `k2` are the same.
      
       * The `Coercion` type has been significantly enhanced.
         The documentation in `docs/core-spec/core-spec.pdf` reflects
         the new reality.
      
       * The type of `*` is now `*`. No more `BOX`.
      
       * Users can write explicit kind variables in their code,
         anywhere they can write type variables. For backward compatibility,
         automatic inference of kind-variable binding is still permitted.
      
       * The new extension `TypeInType` turns on the new user-facing
         features.
      
       * Type families and synonyms are now promoted to kinds. This causes
         trouble with parsing `*`, leading to the somewhat awkward new
         `HsAppsTy` constructor for `HsType`. This is dispatched with in
         the renamer, where the kind `*` can be told apart from a
         type-level multiplication operator. Without `-XTypeInType` the
         old behavior persists. With `-XTypeInType`, you need to import
         `Data.Kind` to get `*`, also known as `Type`.
      
       * The kind-checking algorithms in TcHsType have been significantly
         rewritten to allow for enhanced kinds.
      
       * The new features are still quite experimental and may be in flux.
      
       * TODO: Several open tickets: #11195, #11196, #11197, #11198, #11203.
      
       * TODO: Update user manual.
      
      Tickets addressed: #9017, #9173, #7961, #10524, #8566, #11142.

      Implement warnings for Semigroups as parent of Monoid · 290def72
      quchen authored
      This patch is similar to the AMP patch (#8004), which offered two
      functions:
      
        1. Warn when an instance of a class has been given, but the type does
           not have a certain superclass instance
        2. Warn when top-level definitions conflict with future Prelude names
      
      These warnings are issued as part of the new `-Wcompat` warning group.

      Implement new -XTemplateHaskellQuotes pragma · 85fcd035
      Herbert Valerio Riedel authored
      Since f16ddcee / D876, `ghc-stage1`
      supports a subset of `-XTemplateHaskell`, but since we need Cabal to be
      able detect (so `.cabal` files can be specified accordingly, see also
      GHC #11102 which omits `TemplateHaskell` from `--supported-extensions`)
      whether GHC provides full or only partial `-XTemplateHaskell` support,
      the proper way to accomplish this is to split off the
      quotation/non-splicing `TemplateHaskell` feature-subset into a new
      language pragma `TemplateHaskellQuotes`.
      
      Moreover, `-XTemplateHaskellQuotes` is considered safe under SafeHaskell

      Implement function-sections for Haskell code, #8405 · 4a32bf92
      olsner authored
      This adds a flag -split-sections that does similar things to
      -split-objs, but using sections in single object files instead of
      relying on the Satanic Splitter and other abominations. This is very
      similar to the GCC flags -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections.
      
      The --gc-sections linker flag, which allows unused sections to actually
      be removed, is added to all link commands (if the linker supports it) so
      that space savings from having base compiled with sections can be
      realized.
      
      Supported both in LLVM and the native code-gen, in theory for all
      architectures, but really tested on x86 only.
      
      In the GHC build, a new SplitSections variable enables -split-sections
      for relevant parts of the build.
      
      Test Plan: validate with both settings of SplitSections

      Make GHCi & TH work when the compiler is built with -prof · ce1f1607
      Simon Marlow authored
      Summary:
      Amazingly, there were zero changes to the byte code generator and very
      few changes to the interpreter - mainly because we've used good
      abstractions that hide the differences between profiling and
      non-profiling.  So that bit was pleasantly straightforward, but there
      were a pile of other wibbles to get the whole test suite through.
      
      Note that a compiler built with -prof is now like one built with
      -dynamic, in that to use TH you have to build the code the same way.
      For dynamic, we automatically enable -dynamic-too when TH is required,
      but we don't have anything equivalent for profiling, so you have to
      explicitly use -prof when building code that uses TH with a profiled
      compiler.  For this reason Cabal won't work with TH.  We don't expect
      to ship a profiled compiler, so I think that's OK.

      Summary:
      This commit reimplements shadowing on package databases by doing
      the shadowing calculation on a per-database basis: specifically,
      if a later package database shadows a package from the earlier
      databases, we first remove that package (and its transitive
      dependencies) before merging the databases together.
      
      This should also fix bootstrapping GHC HEAD with HEAD.
