    unique: fix UNIQUE_BITS crosscompilation (Trac #13491) · 01b062ec

    The #13491
     manifests best when we try to crosscompile
    from 32-bit (i386-linux) to 64-bit (powerpc64-linux)
        ./configure --target=powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu
    The build fails at assembly time:
      "inplace/bin/ghc-stage1" ...  -c rts/StgStartup.cmm
        /tmp/ghc19687_0/ghc_4.s: Assembler messages:
        /tmp/ghc19687_0/ghc_4.s:11:0: error:
             Error: unknown pseudo-op: `.l'
        11 | .L<\x00>4:
           | ^
    That happens because UNIQUE_BITS is defined in terms
    of WORD_SIZE_IN_BITS macro:
        #define UNIQUE_BITS (WORD_SIZE_IN_BITS - 8)
    WORD_SIZE_IN_BITS is 64 bits (equals to target value)
    while ghc-stage1 is still running on i386-linux
    The fix is to stop relying on target macros and use
    host's 'sizeof (HsInt)' and 'finiteBitSize' way to
    determine unique layout.
