Make the demand on a binder compatible with type (fixes Trac #8569)
Because of GADTs and casts we were getting binders whose demand annotation was more deeply nested than made sense for its type. See Note [Trimming a demand to a type], in Demand.lhs, which I reproduce here: Note [Trimming a demand to a type] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Consider this: f :: a -> Bool f x = case ... of A g1 -> case (x |> g1) of (p,q) -> ... B -> error "urk" where A,B are the constructors of a GADT. We'll get a U(U,U) demand on x from the A branch, but that's a stupid demand for x itself, which has type 'a'. Indeed we get ASSERTs going off (notably in splitUseProdDmd, Trac #8569). Bottom line: we really don't want to have a binder whose demand is more deeply-nested than its type. There are various ways to tackle this. When processing (x |> g1), we could "trim" the incoming demand U(U,U) to match x's type. But I'm currently doing so just at the moment when we pin a demand on a binder, in DmdAnal.findBndrDmd.
