      Fix various issues with testsuite code on Windows · a3704409
      Tamar Christina authored
      Previously we would make direct calls to `diff` using `os.system`.
      On Windows `os.system` is implemented using the standard
      idiom `CreateProcess .. WaitForSingleObject ..`.
      This again runs afoul with the `_exec` behaviour on Windows. So we ran
      into some trouble where sometimes `diff` would return before it's done.
      On tests which run multiple ways, such as `8086` what happens is that
      we think the diff is done and continue. The next way tries to set things
      up again by removing any previous directory. This would then fail with
      and error saying the directory can't be removed. Which is true, because
      the previous diff code/child is still running.
      We shouldn't make any external calls to anything using `os.system`.
      Instead just use `runCmd` which uses `timeout`. This also ensures that if
      we hit the cygwin bug where diff or any other utility hangs, we kill it and
      continue and not hang the entire test and leave hanging processes.
      Further more we also:
      Ignore error lines from `removeFile` from tools in the testsuite. This is a rather large
      hammer to work around the fact that `hsc2hs` often tries to remove it's own file too early.
      When this is patched the workaround can be removed. See Trac #9775
      We mark `prog003` as skip. Since this test randomly fails and passes. For stability it's disabled
      but it is a genuine bug which we should find. It's something with interface files being
      overwritten. See Trac #11317
      when `rmtree` hits a readonly file, the `onerror` handler is raised afterwards but not
      during the tree walk. It doesn't allow you to recover and continue as we thought.
      Instead you have to explicitly start again. This is why sometimes even though we
      call `cleanup` before `os.mkdirs`, it would sometimes fail with an error that the
      folder already exists. So we now do a second walk.
      A new verbosity level (4) will strip the silent flags from `MAKE` invocations so you can actually
      see what's going on.
      Test Plan: ./validate on build bots.

      CallArity: Use exprIsCheap to detect thunks · 815099cc
      Joachim Breitner authored
      Originally, everything that is not in WHNF (`exprIsWHNF`) is considered
      a thunk, not eta-expanded, to avoid losing any sharing. This is also how
      the published papers on Call Arity describe it.
      In practice, there are thunks that do a just little work, such as
      pattern-matching on a variable, and the benefits of eta-expansion likely
      oughtweigh the cost of doing that repeatedly. Therefore, this
      implementation of Call Arity considers everything that is not cheap
      (`exprIsCheap`) as a thunk.
      Nofib reports -2.58% allocations for scs and -40.93% allocation for
      wheel-sieve1; the latter has - 2.92% runtime.

      Support for abi-depends for computing shadowing. · ee4e1654
      Edward Z. Yang authored
      This is a complete fix based off of
      ed7af26606b3a605a4511065ca1a43b1c0f3b51d for handling
      shadowing and out-of-order -package-db flags simultaneously.
      The general strategy is we first put all databases together,
      overriding packages as necessary.  Once this is done, we successfully
      prune out broken packages, including packages which depend on a package
      whose ABI differs from the ABI we need.
      Our check gracefully degrades in the absence of abi-depends, as
      we only check deps which are recorded in abi-depends.
      Contains time and Cabal submodule update.

      It turns out there were two Notes in the GHC codebase named
      [Pattern synonym signatures]. To avoid confusion, I gave one Note a slightly
      different name.

      Fix 'SPECIALISE instance' · 1a4c04b1
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      Trac #12944 showed that the DsBinds code that implemented a
      SPECIALISE pragma was inadequate if the constraints solving
      added let-bindings for dictionaries.  The result was that
      we ended up with an unbound dictionary in a DFunUnfolding -- and
      Lint didn't even check for that!
      Fixing this was not entirely straightforward
      * In DsBinds.dsSpec we use a new function
        to pick off the lambda binders from the HsWapper
      * dsWrapper now returns a (CoreExpr -> CoreExpr) function
      * CoreUnfold.specUnfolding now takes a (CoreExpr -> CoreExpr)
        function it can use to specialise the unfolding.
      On the whole the code is simpler than before.

      Never apply worker/wrapper to DFuns · c48595ee
      Simon Peyton Jones authored
      While fixing Trac #12444 I found an occasion on which we applied
      worker/wrapper to a DFunId.  This is bad: it destroys the magic
      This patch is a minor refactoring that stops this corner case
      happening, and tidies up the code a bit too.

      It turned out that many different modules defined the same type
      synonyms (InId, OutId, InType, OutType, etc) for the same purpose.
      This patch is refactoring only: it moves all those definitions to
