    Improve the default parallel GC settings, and sanitise the flags (#3340) · 53628e91
    Simon Marlow authored
    Flags (from +RTS -?):
    
      -qg[<n>]  Use parallel GC only for generations >= <n>
                (default: 0, -qg alone turns off parallel GC)
      -qb[<n>]  Use load-balancing in the parallel GC only for generations >= <n>
                (default: 1, -qb alone turns off load-balancing)
    
    these are good defaults for most parallel programs.  Single-threaded
    programs that want to make use of parallel GC will probably want +RTS
    -qg1 (this is documented).
    
    I've also updated the docs.
