    Use IfaceAppArgs to store an IfaceAppTy's arguments · 1c353623

    Summary:
    Currently, an `IfaceAppTy` has no way to tell whether its
    argument is visible or not, so it simply treats all arguments as
    visible, leading to #15330. We already have a solution for this
    problem in the form of the `IfaceTcArgs` data structure, used by
    `IfaceTyConApp` to represent the arguments to a type constructor.
    Therefore, it makes sense to reuse this machinery for `IfaceAppTy`,
    so this patch does just that.
    
    This patch:
    
    1. Renames `IfaceTcArgs` to `IfaceAppArgs` to reflect its more
       general purpose.
    2. Changes the second field of `IfaceAppTy` from `IfaceType` to
       `IfaceAppArgs`, and propagates the necessary changes through. In
       particular, pretty-printing an `IfaceAppTy` now goes through the
       `IfaceAppArgs` pretty-printer, which correctly displays arguments
       as visible or not for free, fixing #15330.
    3. Changes `toIfaceTypeX` and related functions so that when
       converting an `AppTy` to an `IfaceAppTy`, it flattens as many
       argument `AppTy`s as possible, and then converts those arguments
       into an `IfaceAppArgs` list, using the kind of the function
       `Type` as a guide. (Doing so minimizes the number of times we need
       to call `typeKind`, which is more expensive that finding the kind
       of a `TyCon`.)
