      Fixed this 6.4 TODO item listed on the wiki:
      
       PowerPC Linux (32bit): Fix GHCi FFI calls for arguments that are not passed on the stack (ByteCodeFFI).
      
      Separated the code for Darwin and Linux (for PowerPC only).  Rewrote the Linux version to account for the differences in the ABIs.
      
      All changes are inside #if powerpc_TARGET_ARCH && linux_TARGET_OS except:
        - import Data.List ( mapAccumL )      (used by my code)
        - small fix to a comment typo in Wolfgang's Darwin code
        - changed 'undefined' to a more meaningful 'error' message if
           mkMarshalCode is unimplemented
      
      Ran regression tests.  It passes them all except for the ones that are broken because of the 'wrapper' problems currently being addressed.

      system is replaced with rawSystem. This allows to use path names with embeded
      spaces under Windows. This is the same story as with hsc2hs but ghc-pkg is
      used only with GHC, so the change will not affect other compilers.
      Cabal uses "Program Files" as default installation path and this manifests
      the bug.

      Fix what looks like a cut-n-pasto in retry#: the MAYBE_GC() was
      specifying readTVarzh_fast as the restart point, leading to a crash if
      MAYBE_GC triggered a GC in here.

      ------------------
                Fix an mdo bug
        	------------------
      
      Embarassingly, this bug makes GHC either panic (for some programs) or
      go into a loop (on others) in a recursive mdo that involves a
      polymorphic function.  Urk!
      
      The fix is twofold:
        a) add a missing bindInstsOfLocalFuns to tcStmtAndThen (RecStmt case)
        b) bind the correct set of variables in dsRecStmt
      
      I added some explanatory comments about RecStmt in HsExpr too.
      
      The tests is mdo/should_compile/mdo006

      ghc/mk/config.mk was never being included in ordinary Makefiles.  It
      was only included in the top-level fptools/Makefile for the purposes
      of obtaining binary distribution settings.
      
      This fixes that problem, and now as a side-effect $(GhcHasReadline)
      will start working again.

      Fix to the pre-Xmas simplifier changes, which should make 
      everything work again.  I'd forgotten to attend to this
      corner.  Still not properly tested I fear.
      
      Also remove dead code from SimplEnv, and simplify the remainder (hooray).

      ---------------------------
                Refactor the simplifier
        	---------------------------
      
      Driven by a GADT bug, I have refactored the simpifier, and the way GHC
      treats substitutions.  I hope I have gotten it right.  Be cautious about updating.
      
      * coreSyn/Subst.lhs has gone
      
      * coreSyn/CoreSubst replaces it, except that it's quite a bit simpler
      
      * simplCore/SimplEnv is added, and contains the simplifier-specific substitution
        stuff
      
      Previously Subst was trying to be all things to all men, and that was making
      it Too Complicated.
      
      There may be a little more code now, but it's much easier to understand.

      Further wibbles to the scoped-tyvar story.
      
      This commit tidies up the ATyVar in TcTyThing, making it
      	ATyVar Name Type
      instead of the previous misleading
      	ATyVar TyVar Type
      
      But the main thing is that we must take care with definitions
      like this:
      
      	type T a = forall b. b -> (a,b)
      
      	f :: forall c. T c
      	f = ...
      
      Here, we want only 'c' to scope over the RHS of f.  The renamer ensures
      that... but we must also take care that we freshly instantiate the 
      expanded type signature (forall c b. b -> (c,b)) before checking f's RHS,
      so that we don't get false sharing between uses of T.

                Template Haskell: names again
        	---------------------------------
      
      On 2 Dec 04 I made this commit (1.58 in Convert.lhs)
      
          Fix a Template Haskell bug that meant that top-level names created
          with newName were not made properly unique.
      
      But that just introduced a new bug!  THe trouble is that names created by
      newName are NameUs; but I was *also* using NameU for names of free varaibles,
      such as the 'x' in the quoted code here
      	f x = $( g [| \y -> (x,y) |])
      
      But when converting to HsSyn, the x and y must be treated diffferently.
      The 'x' must convert to an Exact RdrName, so that it binds to the 'x' that's
      in the type environment; but the 'y' must generate a nice unique RdrName.
      
      So this commit adds NameL for the lexically-scoped bindings like 'x'.

      ----------------------------------------
      	     Add more scoped type variables
      	----------------------------------------
      
      Now the top-level forall'd variables of a type signature scope
      over the right hand side of that function.
      
      	f :: a -> a
      	f x = ....
      
      The type variable 'a' is in scope in the RHS, and in f's patterns.
      
      It's implied by -fglasgow-exts, but can also be switched off independently
      using -fscoped-type-variables (and the -fno variant)

           New Core invariant: keep case alternatives in sorted order
      	----------------------------------------
      
      We now keep the alternatives of a Case in the Core language in sorted
      order.  Sorted, that is,
      	by constructor tag	for DataAlt
      	by literal		for LitAlt
      
      The main reason is that it makes matching and equality testing more robust.
      But in fact some lines of code vanished from SimplUtils.mkAlts.
      
      
      WARNING: no change to interface file formats, but you'll need to recompile
      your libraries so that they generate interface files that respect the
      invariant.

      --------------------------
      	Add -fwarn-orphans flag
      	--------------------------
      
      This gives a decent report for modules that contain 'orphan' instance and
      rule declarations.  These are to be avoided, because GHC has to proactively
      read the interface file every single time, just in case the instance/rule is
      needed.
      
      The flag just gives a convenient way of identifying the culprits.
