    StaticPointers: Allow closed vars in the static form. · 36d29f7c
    Facundo Domínguez authored
    With this patch closed variables are allowed regardless of whether
    they are bound at the top level or not.
    The FloatOut pass is always performed. When optimizations are
    disabled, only expressions that go to the top level are floated.
    Thus, the applications of the StaticPtr data constructor are always
    The CoreTidy pass makes sure the floated applications appear in the
    symbol table of object files. It also collects the floated bindings
    and inserts them in the static pointer table.
    The renamer does not check anymore if free variables appearing in the
    static form are top-level. Instead, the typechecker looks at the
    tct_closed flag to decide if the free variables are closed.
    The linter checks that applications of StaticPtr only occur at the
    top of top-level bindings after the FloatOut pass.
    The field spInfoName of StaticPtrInfo has been removed. It used to
    contain the name of the top-level binding that contains the StaticPtr
    application. However, this information is no longer available when the
    StaticPtr is constructed, as the binding name is determined now by the
    FloatOut pass.
