      Disable T-signals-child test on single-threaded runtime · 0d9524a8
      Michael Snoyman authored
      As identified by Joachim, this test broke the Travis build. It appears
      that this is due to the usage of the single-threaded runtime there. I've
      confirmed that this fix causes the Travis build to pass:

      Build ghc-iserv with --export-dynamic · 3ce0e0ba
      Simon Marlow authored
      This enables loading dynamic libraries that refer to the RTS.  I just
      came across somewhere I needed to do that, and without
      `--export-dynamic` it's impossible.
      
      For now we'll only support that when using `-fexternal-interpreter`,
      because the dynamic symbol table for GHC itself is much bigger.

      Make error when deriving an instance for a typeclass less misleading · d5a4e49d
      Ryan Scott authored
      Before, when you attempted to derive an instance for a typeclass,
      e.g.,
      
      ```
      class C1 (a :: Constraint) where
      class C2 where
      
      deriving instance C1 C2
      ```
      
      GHC would complain that `C2`'s data constructors aren't in scope. But
      that
      makes no sense, since typeclasses don't have constructors! By refining
      the
      checks that GHC performs when deriving, we can make the error message a
      little more sensible.
      
      This also cleans up a related `DeriveAnyClass` infelicity. Before, you
      wouldn't have been able to compile code like this:
      
      ```
      import System.IO (Handle)
      class C a
      deriving instance C Handle
      ```
      
      Since GHC was requiring that all data constructors of `Handle` be in
      scope. But `DeriveAnyClass` doesn't even generate code that mentions
      any data constructors, so this requirement is silly!
      
      Fixes #11509.

      Add missing Semigroup instances for Monoidal datatypes in base · 8c6a3d68
      Ryan Scott authored
      Summary:
      There are currently three datatypes that are exposed in `base` that have
      `Monoid` instances, but no `Semigroup` instances:
      
      * `IO`
      * `Event` (from `GHC.Event`)
      * `Lifetime` (from `GHC.Event`)
      
      (There is also `EventLifetime` in `GHC.Event.Internal`, but it is not exported
      directly, so I didn't bother with it.)
      
      Adding the `Semigroup` instances for these types directly in the modules in
      which they're defined resulted in some horrific import cycles, so I opted to
      take the easy approach of defining all of these instances in `Data.Semigroup`.
      (When `Semigroup` becomes a superclass of `Monoid`, these instances will have
      to be moved somehow.)
      
      Fixes #12464.

      Clean up handling of known-key Names in interface files · 34d933d6
      Ben Gamari authored
      Previously BinIface had some dedicated logic for handling tuple names in
      the symbol table. As it turns out, this logic was essentially dead code
      as it was superceded by the special handling of known-key things. Here
      we cull the tuple code-path and use the known-key codepath for all
      tuple-ish things.
      
      This had a surprising number of knock-on effects,
      
       * constraint tuple datacons had to be made known-key (previously they
         were not)
      
       * IfaceTopBndr was changed from being a synonym of OccName to a
         synonym of Name (since we now need to be able to deserialize Names
         directly from interface files)
      
       * the change to IfaceTopBndr complicated fingerprinting, since we need
         to ensure that we don't go looking for the fingerprint of the thing
         we are currently fingerprinting in the fingerprint environment (see
         notes in MkIface). Handling this required distinguishing between
         binding and non-binding Name occurrences in the Binary serializers.
      
       * the original name cache logic which previously lived in IfaceEnv has
         been moved to a new NameCache module
      
       * I ripped tuples and sums out of knownKeyNames since they introduce a
         very large number of entries. During interface file deserialization
         we use static functions (defined in the new KnownUniques module) to
         map from a Unique to a known-key Name (the Unique better correspond
         to a known-key name!) When we need to do an original name cache
         lookup we rely on the parser implemented in isBuiltInOcc_maybe.
      
       * HscMain.allKnownKeyNames was folded into PrelInfo.knownKeyNames.
      
       * Lots of comments were sprinkled about describing the new scheme.
      
      Updates haddock submodule.

      Joachim Breitner authored
      A rule with a phase specification trying to match on a constructor with
      a wrapper will fail to match, as the wrapper will be inlined by then.
      The fact that it works in the other case is also mostly by accident.
      (Split into two test cases so that regressions with regard what works so
      far are caught.)

      Move zonking out of tcFamTyPats · 76a5477b
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      In tcFamTyPats we were zonking from the TcType world to the
      Type world, ready to build the results into a CoAxiom (which
      should have no TcType stuff.  But the 'thing_inside' for
      tcFamTyPats also must be zonked, and that zonking must have
      the ZonkEnv from the binders zonked tcFamTyPats.
      
      Ugh.  This caused an assertion failure (with DEBUG on) in
      RaeBlobPost and TypeLevelVec, both in tests/dependent, as
      shown in Trac #12682.  Why it hasn't shown up before now
      is obscure to me.
      
      So I moved the zonking stuff out of tcFamTyPats to its
      three call sites, where we can do it all together. Very
      slightly longer, but much more robust.

      Orient improvement constraints better · b255ae7b
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      This patch fixes an infinite loop in the constraint solver,
      shown up by Trac #12522.
      
      The solution is /very/ simple: just reverse the orientation of the
      derived constraints arising from improvement using type-family
      injectivity.  I'm not very proud of the fix --- it seems fragile
      --- but it has the very great merit of simplicity, and it works
      fine.
      
      See Note [Improvement orientation] in TcInteract, and some
      discussion on the Trac ticket.

      Turn on -n4m with -A16m or greater · 85e81a85
      Simon Marlow authored
      Nursery chunks help reduce the cost of GC when capabilities are unevenly
      loaded, by ensuring that we use more of the available nursery.
      
      The rationale for enabling this at -A16m is that any negative effects
      due to loss of cache locality are less likely to be an issue at -A16m
      and above.  It's a conservative guess.  If we had a lot of benchmark
      data we could probably do better.

      Default +RTS -qn to the number of cores · 6c47f2ef
      Simon Marlow authored
      Setting a -N value that is too large has a dramatic negative effect on
      performance, but the new -qn flag can mitigate the worst of the effects
      by limiting the number of GC threads.
      
      So now, if you don't explcitly set +RTS -qn, and you set -N larger than
      the number of cores (or use setNumCapabilities to do the same), we'll
      default -qn to the number of cores.
      
      These are the results from nofib/parallel on my 4-core (2 cores x 2
      threads) i7 laptop, comparing -N8 before and after this change.

      Cleanup PosixSource.h · 8dc72f3c
      Moritz Angermann authored
      When trying to build arm64-apple-iso, the build fell over `strdup`, as
      the arm64-apple-ios build did not fall into `darwin_HOST_OS`, and would
      need `ios_HOST_OS`.
      
      This diff tries to clean up PosixSource.h, instead of layering another
      define on top.
      
      As we use `strnlen` in sources that include PosixSource.h, and `strnlen`
      is defined in POSIX.1-2008, the `_POSIX_C_SOURCE` and `_XOPEN_SOURCE`
      are increased accordingly.
      
      Furthermore the `_DARWIN_C_SOURCE` (required for `u_char`, etc. used in
      sysctl.h) define is moved into `OSThreads.h` alongside a similar ifdef
      for freebsd.
      
      Test Plan: Build on all supported platforms.

      Do not segfault if no common root can be found · bcd34451
      Moritz Angermann authored
      When trying to profile a plugin, ghc mysteriously segfaulted.  Upon
      closer examination the segfault happend due to a `->prevStack` lookup
      on a NULL pointer.
      
      A new CostCentre: Unknown is introduced that is set, if ccsapp and
      ccsfn are of equal depth (e.g. 0), and do not have a common CostCentre
      in their stacks.
