    Implement new integer-gmp2 from scratch (re #9281) · c774b28f
    Herbert Valerio Riedel authored
    This is done as a separate `integer-gmp2` backend library because it
    turned out to become a complete rewrite from scratch.
    
    Due to the different (over)allocation scheme and potentially different
    accounting (via the new `{shrink,resize}MutableByteArray#` primitives),
    some of the nofib benchmarks actually results in increased allocation
    numbers (but not necessarily an increase in runtime!).  I believe the
    allocation numbers could improve if `{resize,shrink}MutableByteArray#`
    could be optimised to reallocate in-place more efficiently.
    
    Here are the more apparent changes in the latest nofib comparision
    between `integer-gmp` and `integer-gmp2`:

    (see P35 / https://phabricator.haskell.org/P35 for full report)
    
    By default, `INTEGER_LIBRARY=integer-gmp2` is active now, which results
    in the package `integer-gmp-1.0.0.0` being registered in the package db.
    The previous `integer-gmp-0.5.1.0` can be restored by setting
    `INTEGER_LIBRARY=integer-gmp` (but will probably be removed altogether
    for GHC 7.12). In-tree GMP support has been stolen from the old
    `integer-gmp` (while unpatching the custom memory-allocators, as well as
    forcing `-fPIC`)
    
    A minor hack to `ghc-cabal` was necessary in order to support two different
    `integer-gmp` packages (in different folders) with the same package key.
    
    There will be a couple of follow-up commits re-implementing some features
    that were dropped to keep D82 minimal, as well as further
    clean-ups/improvements.
