Description

If you run ghc --make [some .hs files] -o [output] and there is no Main.main, ghc doesn't complain, and silently doesn't produce an executable.

In 74897dec/ghc:

Make rts/ThreadLabels.c threadsafe for debug runtime.

rts/ThreadLabels.c has a global hashtable for each
running haskell thread. It's not synchronized across
OS threads.

Was discovered when ran -debug build of ghc itself as:

    $ ghc-stage2 -j8 +RTS -A256M -l

and glibc detected double-free corruption:

    #2  in __libc_message (do_abort=do_abort@entry=2,
        fmt=fmt@entry=0x7fe0bcebf368 "*** Error in `%s': %s: 0x%s ***\n")
    #3  in malloc_printerr (action=3, str=0x7fe0bcebf4c0 "double free or corruption (fasttop)",
        ptr=<optimized out>)
    #4  in _int_free (av=<optimized out>, p=<optimized out>, have_lock=0)
    #5  in stgFree (p=0x7fe060001820) at rts/RtsUtils.c:108
    #6  in freeHashTable (table=0x5929320, freeDataFun=0x36374df <stgFree>) at rts/Hash.c:360
    #7  in freeThreadLabelTable () at rts/ThreadLabels.c:37
    #8  in hs_exit_ (wait_foreign=rtsFalse) at rts/RtsStartup.c:403
    #9  in shutdownHaskellAndExit (n=0, fastExit=0) at rts/RtsStartup.c:481
    #10 in hs_main (...) at rts/RtsMain.c:91
    #11 in main (...) at ghc/hschooks.c:63
