There are several NOTE files in GHC source tree. e.g. new_tc_note, compiler/DLL-NOTE, complier/NOTE, compiler/Simon-log. But these files doesn't update long time except compiler/cmm/cmm-notes. I think these files have many old informations.

How about remove these files except compiler/cmm/cmm-notes, if there aren't any important information anymore?

I've removed

  • new_tc_note
  • compiler/NOTE
  • compiler/Simon-log

compiler/cmm/cmm-notes is definitely alive

I'm not sure about compiler/DLL-NOTE.

compiler/DLL-NOTES appears to be obsolete too, I'll remove it.
