    Synchronise ghci-package version with ghc-package · 01299ca8

    In order to simplify the task, the version munging logic has
    been radically simplified:
    Previously, in cases where the version contained dates as version components,
    the build-system would munge the version of the stage1 ghc package before
    registering the `ghc` package.
    However, this hack was already questionable at the time of its introduction
    (c.f. 7b45c46c).
    Simplifying the build-systems by avoiding such hacks may also help the
    shaking-up-ghc effort.
    So now we simply munge directly via the `.cabal` files, which gives a simpler
    picture, as now every stage is munged the same. Munging is only active when
    the first patch-level version component is a date. So stable snapshots and release
    candidates are unaffacted (as those have the date in the second patch-level
    version component)
