      	Make code generation ignore isLocalId/isGlobalId
      CorePrep may introduce some new, top-level LocalIds.  This
      breaks an invariant that the core2stg/code generator passes
      occasionally used, namely that LocalIds are not top-level bound.
      This commit fixes that problem.
      It also removes an assert from CodeGen.cgTopRhs that asks
      for the CgInfo of such new LocalIds -- but they may (legitimately)
      not have any, so it was a bad ASSERT.  [Showed up in George
      Russel's system.]

      	Fix a scoped-type-variable bug
      The bug caused an incorrect failure when the same type
      variable was used more than once in a collection of patterns:
      	f (x :: t) (y :: t) = e
      On the way, I eliminated bindNakedTyVarsFVRn, which was only
      called once.

      Subvert GHC's full-laziness optimisation by explicitly lambda-lifting
      a local lambda expression to the top level, and exporting it to ensure
      it doesn't get inlined.  Without this hack, full-laziness will float
      out several subexpressions, which turns out to be a pessimisation in
      this case.
      This is worth about 20% in hPutStr performance, so we now beat the old
      I/O library on 'cat' ;-)
      I'd like to MERGE TO STABLE this, but 5.02 is imminent so it might
      have to wait until 5.02.1.

      Knock the FFI documentation into some sort of shape for the release:
      - The blurb about "the FFI is in two/three parts..." was repeated in
        three places.  We also at some point seem to have lost the property
        that the FFI spec is a self-contained document; I don't try to fix
        that here, since we're going to replace it with the new spec at some
      - Replace references to Addr and ForeignObj with Ptr and ForeignPtr.
      - Remove mentions of GHC's ByteArray and MutableByteArray types, as
        these are deprecated and will be removed in a couple of versions.
        (mostly subsumed by allocaBytes and friends).
      - Catch up with GHC's removal of the library specification from foreign
        import.  Mention that libraries are specified in a compiler-dependent
        way now, and that GHC uses either packages or command-line opts for
      - Fix up some markup.

      	Add a rule-check pass
      	(special request by Manuel)
      	DO NOT merge with stable
      The flag
      	-frule-check foo
      will report all sites at which RULES whose name starts with "foo.."
      might apply, but in fact the arguments don't match so the rule
      doesn't apply.
      The pass is run right after all the core-to-core passes.  (Next thing
      to do: make the core-to-core script external, so you can fiddle with
      it.  Meanwhile, the core-to-core script is in
      so you can move the CoreDoRuleCheck line around if you want.
      The format of the report is experimental: Manuel, feel free to fiddle
      with it.
      Most of the code is in specialise/Rules.lhs
      Incidental changes
      Change BuiltinRule so that the rule name is accessible
      without actually successfully applying the rule.  This
      change affects quite a few files in a trivial way.

      	Make seq built in
      	DO NOT merge with stable
      Until this commit 'seq' used a cunning hack so that it
      seems to be *non-strict* in its second argument:
        seq x y = case seq# x of { 0 -> y; other -> error "urk" }
      The reason for this is to make sure that x is evaluated before y,
      which is what you want in a parallel setting.
      But in a *sequential* settting, this simply destroys strictness
      information about y.  Now that people are starting to use seq more,
      this is becoming painful.  People sometimes use seq to make their
      function strict, and are surprised when it becomes non-strict in other
      So this commit changes seq so that it does what you would naively
      	seq x y = case x of { any -> y }
      This is done by making seq built-in, defined along with
      in MkId.lhs.  (I considered giving their unfoldings in
      PrelGHC.hi-boot.pp, but then there is the matter of making sure they
      are unfolded, since these fns don't have top-level curried defns,
      so I held off and did seq the same way as the other two.)
      I renamed PrelConc.seq as PrelConc.pseq; maybe its name will change
      to `then` or `before` or something else.  That's up to the GPH

      	Cleanup in DataCon
      	DO NOT merge with stable
      The dataConRepStrictness call used to reuturn a [Demand],
      but that's a bit misleading.  In particular, consider a  strict
      	data Foo = MkFoo ![Int]
      Then the wrapper MkFoo is strict, but the worker $wMkFoo is not.
      	MkFoo x = case x of { DEFAULT -> $wMkFoo x }
      Nevertheless, when we pattern-match on $wMkFoo we will surely
      find an evaluated component to the data structure, and that is
      what dataConRepStrictness reports, and that's how it is used
      in Simplify.
      Solution: make dataConRepStrictness return [StrictnessMark]
      not [Demand]. A small matter really.

      merge (ghc-5-02-branch --> HEAD):
      Bugfix: there was an implicit assumption that the list of slots passed
      to freeStackSlots was already sorted, whereas in fact this wasn't the
      case for at least one call.  Now we explicitly sort the list in
      freeStackSlots, removing the hidden assumption.
      The symptoms of this bug include crashes (perhaps the "AsmCodeGen"
      crash), and a tendency to grow the stack a lot when let-no-escapes are
      involved (because the bug caused fragmentation of the stack free list,
      so we weren't re-using free slots properly).  +3 -2      fptools/ghc/compiler/codeGen/CgStackery.lhs
      ASSERT that the list of stack slots we calculate in buildLivenessMask
      is sorted, because we rely on that property later.  +5 -6      fptools/ghc/compiler/codeGen/CgBindery.lhs

      Make hsc2hs find template-hsc.h on Windows. This involves putting Main.hs
      through cpp; to avoid the string gap problem preprocessing
      __GLASGOW_HASKELL__ into its value inside strings, make judicious use of ++
      (hope that's OK, Marcin; there seemed very little point in putting it all in
      KludgedSystem this time).
