Simplifier failing to unbox join point

A consequence of the recent "silent superclass" patch is that T5113 performance test is failing badly:

=====> T5113(normal) 2794 of 3389 [0, 786, 0] cd ./perf/should_run && '/64playpen/simonmar/nightly/HEAD-cam-04-unx/x86_64-unknown-linux/inplace/bin/ghc-stage2' -fforce-recomp -dcore-lint -dcmm-lint -dno-debug-output -no-user-package-db -rtsopts  -fno-ghci-history -o T5113 T5113.hs  -O  >T5113.comp.stderr 2>&1
cd ./perf/should_run && ./T5113  +RTS -V0 -tT5113.stats --machine-readable -RTS   </dev/null > 2>
bytes allocated 822112880 is more than maximum allowed 9000000
*** unexpected failure for T5113(normal)

My preliminary diagnosis is that it was only working nicely before by a fluke, and there's a problem here we must look at. In effect, because of a join point we are getting boxing and unboxing in an inner loop.

Simon - the test case for this is now passing (perf/should_run/T5113). Is that because the bug is fixed, or by accident? In the meantime I'll comment out the expect_broken for this test.

It's failing again now. Possibly related to the cabal tests, that were failing due to forcing DynFlags too much, but seem to have stopped failing again?
