      Make globals use sharedCAF · c3c70244
      Moritz Angermann authored
      Summary:
      The use of globals is quite painful when multiple rts are loaded, e.g.
      when plugins are loaded, which bring in a second rts. The sharedCAF
      appraoch was employed for the FastStringTable; I've taken the libery
      to extend this to the other globals I could find.
      
      This is a reboot of D2575, that should hopefully not exhibit the same
      windows build issues.

      Implement -hide-all-plugin-packages and -plugin-package(-id), fixing #11244 · 1faf1fca
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      Summary:
      The basic idea is that we have a new set of "exposed modules"
      which are /only/ used for plugins, i.e. -fplugin Foo and
      --frontend Foo.  You can interact with this namespace
      using the flags -plugin-package-id and -plugin-package.
      By default, this namespace contains all modules in the
      user namespace (as before), but you can toggle that using
      -hide-all-plugin-packages.
      
      There is one nasty hack: GhcMake respects -fplugin in
      GHC_OPTIONS to make local plugins work correctly.  It also
      bails out of you have an import of a module which doesn't
      exist locally or in the package database.  The upshot is
      that we need to be sure to check in the plugin modules
      too, so we don't give a spurious failure when a plugin
      is in the plugin namespace but not the main namespace.
      A better way to fix this would be to distinguish between
      plugin and normal dependencies in ModSummary.
      
      I cheated a little and tweaked a few existing plugins
      tests to exercise the new code paths.

      Frontend plugins. · a3c2a26b
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      Summary:
      Frontend plugins enable users to write plugins to replace
      GHC major modes.  E.g. instead of saying
      
          ghc --make A B C
      
      a user can now say
      
          ghc --frontend GHC.Frontend.Shake A B C
      
      which might provide an alternative implementation of a multi-module
      build.  For more details, see the manual entry.
