      Reorganisation of the source tree · 0065d5ab
      Simon Marlow authored
      Most of the other users of the fptools build system have migrated to
      Cabal, and with the move to darcs we can now flatten the source tree
      without losing history, so here goes.
      
      The main change is that the ghc/ subdir is gone, and most of what it
      contained is now at the top level.  The build system now makes no
      pretense at being multi-project, it is just the GHC build system.
      
      No doubt this will break many things, and there will be a period of
      instability while we fix the dependencies.  A straightforward build
      should work, but I haven't yet fixed binary/source distributions.
      Changes to the Building Guide will follow, too.

      Improvments to time-measurement and stats:
      
        - move all the platform-dependent timing related stuff into
          posix/GetTime.c and win32/GetTime.c, with the machine-indepent
          interface specified in GetTime.h.  This is now used by
          Stats.c.
      
        - On Unix, use gettimeofday() and getrusage() by default, falling
          back to time() if one of these isn't available.
      
        - try to implement thread-specfic CPU-time measurement using
          clock_gettime() on Unix.  Doesn't work reliably on Linux, because
          the implemenation tries to use the processor TSC, which on an
          SMP machine goes wrong when the thread moves between CPUs.  However,
          it's slightly less bogus that before, and hopefully will improve
          in the future.
