                    -- Hans: this isn't right in general, but you can
                    -- elaborate it in the same way as the others

I have NO idea what that comment is referring to

That comment was added in 16d5d1c75c999677783c9c1bda519540fa9a6e58, possibly copied from somewhere else. 'Hans' must be referring to Hans-Wolfgang Loidl (hwloidl), who added 7 commits to ghc around that time.

In e66daeca/ghc:

DynFlags: remove unused sPgm_sysman (#8689)

Something about a long deleted 'system manager' for the 'parallel
system'.

Also remove confusing comment in SysTools, that supposedly referred to
sPgm_sysman. See commit 16d5d1c75c999677783c9c1bda519540fa9a6e58.
