    53 == Tracer Mode ==
    54 
    55 There is a mode '-fhpc-tracer', which compiles code that talks to the hpc-tracer.
    56 
    57  * By default, the -fhpc-tracer program does exactly the same as a -fhpc compiled program.
    58  * When running inside the hpc-tracer context, each tick and a few other important events calls into
    59    the Hpc runtime system function hs_hpc_tick(..).
    60  * This checks to see if any breakpoint has been met, and if so, starts a dialog with the parent hpc-tracer.
