#13693 new bug

RTS cannot be reinitialized reliably after hs_exit()

#2863 added the FFI spec violation to the docs, but as far as I can tell, there is and was no ticket to actually fix the problems, which seem to be:

  1. If the runtime is deinitialized by an hs_exit() matching the first hs_init(), then it cannot be reinitialized reliably using hs_init().
  1. This condition is not detected, and leads to unpredictable behavior.

I'll add a link to this ticket to the user's guide; even if the ticket is ultimately closed as WONTFIX, it will be good to have a persistent reference.

This ticket won't be resolved in 8.4; remilestoning for 8.6. Do holler if you are affected by this or would otherwise like to work on it.

These will not be addressed in GHC 8.6.
