      Remote GHCi, -fexternal-interpreter · 4905b83a
      Simon Marlow authored
      Summary:
      (Apologies for the size of this patch, I couldn't make a smaller one
      that was validate-clean and also made sense independently)
      
      (Some of this code is derived from GHCJS.)
      
      This commit adds support for running interpreted code (for GHCi and
      TemplateHaskell) in a separate process.  The functionality is
      experimental, so for now it is off by default and enabled by the flag
      -fexternal-interpreter.
      
      Reaosns we want this:
      
      * compiling Template Haskell code with -prof does not require
        building the code without -prof first
      
      * when GHC itself is profiled, it can interpret unprofiled code, and
        the same applies to dynamic linking.  We would no longer need to
        force -dynamic-too with TemplateHaskell, and we can load ordinary
        objects into a dynamically-linked GHCi (and vice versa).
      
      * An unprofiled GHCi can load and run profiled code, which means it
        can use the stack-trace functionality provided by profiling without
        taking the performance hit on the compiler that profiling would
        entail.
      
      Amongst other things; see
      https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/RemoteGHCi for more details.
      
      Notes on the implementation are in Note [Remote GHCi] in the new
      module compiler/ghci/GHCi.hs.  It probably needs more documenting,
      feel free to suggest things I could elaborate on.
      
      Things that are not currently implemented for -fexternal-interpreter:
      
      * The GHCi debugger
      * :set prog, :set args in GHCi
      * `recover` in Template Haskell
      * Redirecting stdin/stdout for the external process
      
      These are all doable, I just wanted to get to a working validate-clean
      patch first.
      
      I also haven't done any benchmarking yet.  I expect there to be slight hit
      to link times for byte code and some penalty due to having to
      serialize/deserialize TH syntax, but I don't expect it to be a serious
      problem.  There's also lots of low-hanging fruit in the byte code
      generator/linker that we could exploit to speed things up.
      
      Test Plan:
      * validate
      * I've run parts of the test suite with
      EXTRA_HC_OPTS=-fexternal-interpreter, notably tests/ghci and tests/th.
      There are a few failures due to the things not currently implemented
      (see above).

      Make Monad/Applicative instances MRP-friendly · e8ed2136
      Herbert Valerio Riedel authored
      This patch refactors pure/(*>) and return/(>>) in MRP-friendly way, i.e.
      such that the explicit definitions for `return` and `(>>)` match the
      MRP-style default-implementation, i.e.
      
        return = pure
      
      and
      
        (>>) = (*>)
      
      This way, e.g. all `return = pure` definitions can easily be grepped and
      removed in GHC 8.1;

      Rename some of the functions in NameSet, to make the uniform with VarSet etc · 7460dafa
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      For ages NameSet has used different names,
        eg.   addOneToNameSet   rather than    extendNameSet
              nameSetToList     rather than    nameSetElems
      
      etc.  Other set-like modules use uniform naming conventions.
      This patch makes NameSet follow suit.
      
      No change in behaviour; this is just renaming.
      
      I'm doing this just before the fork so that merging is easier.

      Make Applicative a superclass of Monad · d94de872
      Austin Seipp authored
      
      
      Summary:
      This includes pretty much all the changes needed to make `Applicative`
      a superclass of `Monad` finally. There's mostly reshuffling in the
      interests of avoid orphans and boot files, but luckily we can resolve
      all of them, pretty much. The only catch was that
      Alternative/MonadPlus also had to go into Prelude to avoid this.
      
      As a result, we must update the hsc2hs and haddock submodules.

      Add LANGUAGE pragmas to compiler/ source files · 23892440
      Herbert Valerio Riedel authored
      In some cases, the layout of the LANGUAGE/OPTIONS_GHC lines has been
      reorganized, while following the convention, to
      
      - place `{-# LANGUAGE #-}` pragmas at the top of the source file, before
        any `{-# OPTIONS_GHC #-}`-lines.
      
      - Moreover, if the list of language extensions fit into a single
        `{-# LANGUAGE ... -#}`-line (shorter than 80 characters), keep it on one
        line. Otherwise split into `{-# LANGUAGE ... -#}`-lines for each
        individual language extension. In both cases, try to keep the
        enumeration alphabetically ordered.
        (The latter layout is preferable as it's more diff-friendly)
      
      While at it, this also replaces obsolete `{-# OPTIONS ... #-}` pragma
      occurences by `{-# OPTIONS_GHC ... #-}` pragmas.

      Do not treat a constructor in a *pattern* as a *use* of that constructor · 910a6422
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      Occurrences in terms are uses, in patterns they are not.
      In this way we get unused-constructor warnings from modules like this
      
         module M( f, g, T ) where
           data T = T1 | T2 Bool
      
           f x = T2 x
      
           g T1 = True
           g (T2 x) = x
      
      Here a T1 value cannot be constructed, so we can warn. The use
      in a pattern doesn't count.  See Note [Patterns are not uses]
      in RnPat.
      
      Interestingly this change exposed three module in GHC itself
      that had unused constructors, which I duly removed:
        * ghc/Main.hs
        * compiler/ghci/ByteCodeAsm
        * compiler/nativeGen/PPC/RegInfo
      Their changes are in this patch.

      Interruptible FFI calls with pthread_kill and CancelSynchronousIO. v4 · 83d563cb
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      This is patch that adds support for interruptible FFI calls in the form
      of a new foreign import keyword 'interruptible', which can be used
      instead of 'safe' or 'unsafe'.  Interruptible FFI calls act like safe
      FFI calls, except that the worker thread they run on may be interrupted.
      
      Internally, it replaces BlockedOnCCall_NoUnblockEx with
      BlockedOnCCall_Interruptible, and changes the behavior of the RTS
      to not modify the TSO_ flags on the event of an FFI call from
      a thread that was interruptible.  It also modifies the bytecode
      format for foreign call, adding an extra Word16 to indicate
      interruptibility.
      
      The semantics of interruption vary from platform to platform, but the
      intent is that any blocking system calls are aborted with an error code.
      This is most useful for making function calls to system library
      functions that support interrupting.  There is no support for pre-Vista
      Windows.
      
      There is a partner testsuite patch which adds several tests for this
      functionality.

      RTS tidyup sweep, first phase · a2a67cd5
      Simon Marlow authored
      The first phase of this tidyup is focussed on the header files, and in
      particular making sure we are exposinng publicly exactly what we need
      to, and no more.
      
       - Rts.h now includes everything that the RTS exposes publicly,
         rather than a random subset of it.
      
       - Most of the public header files have moved into subdirectories, and
         many of them have been renamed.  But clients should not need to
         include any of the other headers directly, just #include the main
         public headers: Rts.h, HsFFI.h, RtsAPI.h.
      
       - All the headers needed for via-C compilation have moved into the
         stg subdirectory, which is self-contained.  Most of the headers for
         the rest of the RTS APIs have moved into the rts subdirectory.
      
       - I left MachDeps.h where it is, because it is so widely used in
         Haskell code.
       
       - I left a deprecated stub for RtsFlags.h in place.  The flag
         structures are now exposed by Rts.h.
      
       - Various internal APIs are no longer exposed by public header files.
      
       - Vario...
