Add HeapView functionality
This pulls parts of Joachim Breitner's ghc-heap-view library inside GHC. The bits added are the C hooks into the RTS and a basic Haskell wrapper to these C hooks. The main reason for these to be added to GHC proper is that the code needs to be kept in sync with the closure types defined by the RTS. It is expected that the version of HeapView shipped with GHC will always work with that version of GHC and that extra functionality can be layered on top with a library like ghc-heap-view distributed via Hackage.
