90 Improve the GC behaviour of IORefs (see Ticket #650).
91 
92 This is a small change to the way IORefs interact with the GC, which
93 should improve GC performance for programs with plenty of IORefs.
94 
95 Previously we had a single closure type for mutable variables,
96 MUT_VAR.  Mutable variables were *always* on the mutable list in older
97 generations, and always traversed on every GC.
98 
99 Now, we have two closure types: MUT_VAR_CLEAN and MUT_VAR_DIRTY.  The
100 latter is on the mutable list, but the former is not.  (NB. this
101 differs from MUT_ARR_PTRS_CLEAN and MUT_ARR_PTRS_DIRTY, both of which
102 are on the mutable list).  writeMutVar# now implements a write
103 barrier, by calling dirty_MUT_VAR() in the runtime, that does the
104 necessary modification of MUT_VAR_CLEAN into MUT_VAR_DIRY, and adding
105 to the mutable list if necessary.
106 
107 This results in some pretty dramatic speedups for GHC itself.  I've
108 just measureed a 30% overall speedup compiling a 31-module program
109 (anna) with the default heap settings :-D

113 Improve the GC behaviour of IOArrays/STArrays
114 
115 See Ticket #650
116 
117 This is a small change to the way mutable arrays interact with the GC,
118 that can have a dramatic effect on performance, and make tricks with
119 unsafeThaw/unsafeFreeze redundant.  Data.HashTable should be faster
120 now (I haven't measured it yet).
121 
122 We now have two mutable array closure types, MUT_ARR_PTRS_CLEAN and
123 MUT_ARR_PTRS_DIRTY.  Both are on the mutable list if the array is in
124 an old generation.  writeArray# sets the type to MUT_ARR_PTRS_DIRTY.
125 The garbage collector can set the type to MUT_ARR_PTRS_CLEAN if it
126 finds that no element of the array points into a younger generation
127 (discovering this required a small addition to evacuate(), but rough
128 tests indicate that it doesn't measurably affect performance).
129 
130 NOTE: none of this affects unboxed arrays (IOUArray/STUArray), only
131 boxed arrays (IOArray/STArray).
132 
133 We could go further and extend the DIRTY bit to be per-block rather
134 than for the whole array, but for now this is an easy improvement.

188 GHC.runStmt: run the statement in a new thread to insulate the
189 environment from bad things that the user code might do, such as fork
190 a thread to send an exception back at a later time.  In order to do
191 this, we had to keep track of which thread the ^C exception should go
192 to in a global variable.
193 
194 Also, bullet-proof the top-level exception handler in GHCi a bit;
195 there was a small window where an exception could get through, so if
196 you lean on ^C for a while then press enter you could cause GHCi to
197 exit.

345 Add support for UTF-8 source files
346 
347 GHC finally has support for full Unicode in source files.  Source
348 files are now assumed to be UTF-8 encoded, and the full range of
349 Unicode characters can be used, with classifications recognised using
350 the implementation from Data.Char.  This incedentally means that only
351 the stage2 compiler will recognise Unicode in source files, because I
352 was too lazy to port the unicode classifier code into libcompat.
353 
354 Additionally, the following synonyms for keywords are now recognised:
355 
356   forall symbol        (U+2200)        forall
357   right arrow          (U+2192)        ->
358   left arrow                   (U+2190)        <-
359   horizontal ellipsis  (U+22EF)        ..
360 
361 there are probably more things we could add here.
362 
363 This will break some source files if Latin-1 characters are being used.
364 In most cases this should result in a UTF-8 decoding error.  Later on
365 if we want to support more encodings (perhaps with a pragma to specify
366 the encoding), I plan to do it by recoding into UTF-8 before parsing.
367 
368 Internally, there were some pretty big changes:
369 
370   - FastStrings are now stored in UTF-8
371 
372   - Z-encoding has been moved right to the back end.  Previously we
373     used to Z-encode every identifier on the way in for simplicity,
374     and only decode when we needed to show something to the user.
375     Instead, we now keep every string in its UTF-8 encoding, and
376     Z-encode right before printing it out.  To avoid Z-encoding the
377     same string multiple times, the Z-encoding is cached inside the
378     FastString the first time it is requested.
379 
380     This speeds up the compiler - I've measured some definite
381     improvement in parsing at least, and I expect compilations overall
382     to be faster too.  It also cleans up a lot of cruft from the
383     OccName interface.  Z-encoding is nicely hidden inside the
384     Outputable instance for Names & OccNames now.
385 
386   - StringBuffers are UTF-8 too, and are now represented as
387     ForeignPtrs.
388 
389   - I've put together some test cases, not by any means exhaustive,
390     but there are some interesting UTF-8 decoding error cases that
391     aren't obvious.  Also, take a look at unicode001.hs for a demo.

399 MERGE TO STABLE
400 
401 This commit fixes a nasty problem discovered by Volker Stolz.
402 The problem is described in Note [Multiple instantiation] in
403 TcExpr, which is reproduced below.
404 
405 (Core Lint identifies the problem, incidentally.)
406 
407 tc200 is a test case.
408 
409 
410 Note [Multiple instantiation]
411 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
412 We are careful never to make a MethodInst that has, as its meth_id, another MethodInst.
413 For example, consider
414        f :: forall a. Eq a => forall b. Ord b => a -> b
415 At a call to f, at say [Int, Bool], it's tempting to translate the call to
416 
417        f_m1
418   where
419        f_m1 :: forall b. Ord b => Int -> b
420        f_m1 = f Int dEqInt
421 
422        f_m2 :: Int -> Bool
423        f_m2 = f_m1 Bool dOrdBool
424 
425 But notice that f_m2 has f_m1 as its meth_id.  Now the danger is that if we do
426 a tcSimplCheck with a Given f_mx :: f Int dEqInt, we may make a binding
427        f_m1 = f_mx
428 But it's entirely possible that f_m2 will continue to float out, because it
429 mentions no type variables.  Result, f_m1 isn't in scope.
430 
431 Here's a concrete example that does this (test tc200):
432 
433     class C a where
434       f :: Eq b => b -> a -> Int

445 'newtype' declarations are now parsed exactly like data type declarations,
446 so that you can declare newtypes using GADT syntax.  But that means we
447 must check all the newtype restrictions separately, and I mised one.
448 This commit checks that there is no existential context on the newtype.

488 two fixes for the case when a (synchronous) exception is propagated to
489 the top of a thread's stack, i.e. it is unhandled.
490 
491   1. store the exception in the right place (we were using the
492      OFFSET_StgTSO_stack macro and not accounting for the TSO's
493      header size)
494 
495   2. put an stg_enter_info on the stack so that the GC can understand
496      this thread's stack.

668 Make the front panel compile again, submitted by Duncan Coutts
669 <[email protected]>.  From his email:
670 
671 Attached is a patch to port the GHC RTS font panel to Gtk+ 2.x rather
672 than the obsolete Gtk+ 1.2.
673 
674 There were basically two changes needed. Change the configure check to
675 look for the pkg-config utility rather than the old gtk-config. At it's
676 just checking for Gtk+ 2.0 or later. It may be that the new code
677 actually needs a slightly later version than that. I'm not quite sure.
678 
679 The other change was to convert the ghc-fontpanel.glade file to the
680 glade-2 format using the libglade-convert script and then to re-generate
681 the C code for constructing the GUI, that is the Vis*.c Vis*.h files in
682 ghc/rts.
683 
684 The front panel has been bit-rotting for quite some time so it has not
685 kept up with changes in the rts structures. So I had to comment out
686 references to 3 bits that no longer exist. I've left FIXMEs in the code
687 at the appropriate places so that someone wiser than me can make the
688 appropriate changes.
689 
690 So the thing does now build though I have no doubt that it will not run,
691 or at least will not do the right thing because it has not yet been
692 updated to the current state of the rts. However hopefully now that it
693 is at least buildable with a modern Gtk+ version someone else might be
694 able to fix it up.
695 
696 This also relates to trac ticket #599:

739 The 'mkName' function in Template Haskell wasn't dealing correctly with
740 built-in syntax.  The parser generates Exact RdrNames for built-in syntax
741 operators, such as ':' and '[]'; and hence so should Convert.
