      Remove fancy shadowing logic; always override in package database order. · b5b9cf3a
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      This is a stopgap fix for GHC 8.0 bug #12485: in particular,
      it relaxes need for -package-db flags to be given in
      dependency order.  The trade-off is that we are a lot more
      unsafe when there are packages with duplicate 'id's in
      the database stack: the new code will not do an ABI compatibility
      check: if two packages have the same 'id', they are assumed to
      be ABI compatible.  If this is not true, GHC may build
      segfaulting executables.
      Missing test updates, but I'm putting it up so people can
      take a look.
      In GHC 8.2, we'll record ABIs for all dependencies, allowing
      GHC to make better decisions about shadowing.

      It turned out that finalizers were run too early and information
      resulting from simplifying constraints was not available.
      This patch runs finalizers after a first call to simplifyTop, and
      then calls simplifyTop a second time to deal with constraints
      that could result from running the finalizers.

      Instead of pulling a token and looking for `'('` or `')'`,
      just look for the character itself. This prevents us from
      lexing every single item twice, once to see if it's a

      Pass -no-pie to GCC · fefe02c0
      Ben Gamari authored
      Certain distributions (e.g. Debian and Ubuntu) have enabled PIE be
      default in their GCC packaging. This breaks our abuse of GCC as a linker
      which requires that we pass -Wl,-r, which is incompatible with
      PIE (since the former implies that we are generating a relocatable
      object file and the latter an executable).
      This is a second attempt at D2691. This attempt constrasts with D2691 in that
      it preserves the "does gcc support -no-pie" flag in settings, allowing this to
      be reconfigured by `configure` during installation of a binary distribution.
      Thanks for @rwbarton for drawing attention to this issue.

      Given a static library and an import library in the same folder. e.g.
      running `ghci -lfoo` we should prefer the import library `libfoo.dll.a`
      over `libfoo.a` because we prefer having to just load the DLL.
      And not having to do any linking.

      Describe symptoms of (and the cure for) #12768 in 8.0.2 release notes · 411bd2df
      Ryan Scott authored
      GHC 8.0.2 introduced a bugfix involving GeneralizedNewtypeDeriving in
      96d45145. This made typechecking of
      GND-produced code a bit stricter, and an unfortunate side effect of this was
      that there were a couple of corner-case programs that stopped compiling
      when transitioning from GHC 8.0.1 to 8.0.2.
      Since the number of affected programs seems quite small, and since the fix
      is so straightforward, we opt to simply note this discrepancy in the 8.0.2
      release notes.
      Resolves #12768.

      Fix failure in setnumcapabilities001 (#12728) · 2722cd55
      Simon Marlow authored
      The value of enabled_capabilities can change across a call to
      requestSync(), and we were erroneously using an old value, causing
      things to go wrong later.  It manifested as an assertion failure, I'm
      not sure whether there are worse consequences or not, but we should
      get this fix into 8.0.2 anyway.
      The failure didn't happen for me because it only shows up on machines
      with fewer than 4 processors, due to the new logic to enable -qn
      automatically.  I've bumped the test parameter 8 to make it more
      likely to exercise that code.

      Add and use a new dynamic-library-dirs field in the ghc-pkg info · 9448e627
      Duncan Coutts authored
      Build systems / package managers want to be able to control the file
      layout of installed libraries. In general they may want/need to be able
      to put the static libraries and dynamic libraries in different places.
      The ghc-pkg library regisrtation needs to be able to handle this.
      This is already possible in principle by listing both a static lib dir
      and a dynamic lib dir in the library-dirs field (indeed some previous
      versions of Cabal did this for shared libs on ELF platforms).
      The downside of listing both dirs is twofold. There is a lack of
      precision, if we're not careful with naming then we could end up
      picking up the wrong library. The more immediate problem however is
      that if we list both directories then both directories get included
      into the ELF and Mach-O shared object runtime search paths. On ELF this
      merely slows down loading of shared libs (affecting prog startup time).
      On the latest OSX versions this provokes a much more serious problem:
      that there is a rather low limit on the total size of the section
      containing the runtime search path (and lib names and related) and thus
      listing any unnecessary directories wastes the limited space.
      So the solution in this patch is fairly straightforward: split the
      static and dynamic library search paths in the ghc-pkg db and its use
      within ghc. This is a traditional solution: pkg-config has the same
      static / dynamic split (though it describes in in terms of private and
      public, but it translates into different behaviour for static and
      dynamic linking).
      Indeed it would make perfect sense to also have a static/dynamic split
      for the list of the libraries to use i.e. to have dynamic variants of
      the hs-libraries and extra-libraries fields. These are not immediately
      required so this patch does not add it, but it is a reasonable
      direction to follow.
      To handle compatibility, if the new dynamic-library-dirs field is not
      specified then its value is taken from the library-dirs field.
      Contains Cabal submodule update.
