    Implement -hide-all-plugin-packages and -plugin-package(-id), fixing #11244 · 1faf1fca
    Edward Z. Yang authored
    The basic idea is that we have a new set of "exposed modules"
    which are /only/ used for plugins, i.e. -fplugin Foo and
    --frontend Foo.  You can interact with this namespace
    using the flags -plugin-package-id and -plugin-package.
    By default, this namespace contains all modules in the
    user namespace (as before), but you can toggle that using
    There is one nasty hack: GhcMake respects -fplugin in
    GHC_OPTIONS to make local plugins work correctly.  It also
    bails out of you have an import of a module which doesn't
    exist locally or in the package database.  The upshot is
    that we need to be sure to check in the plugin modules
    too, so we don't give a spurious failure when a plugin
    is in the plugin namespace but not the main namespace.
    A better way to fix this would be to distinguish between
    plugin and normal dependencies in ModSummary.
    I cheated a little and tweaked a few existing plugins
    tests to exercise the new code paths.
