    1818 * Austin Seipp needs to upload the primops compatibility package for 7.8. This is is easy: mostly a copy of `compiler/utils/ExtsCompat64.hs` into a Cabal package. See also [http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Compatibility_Modules the compatibility module page]. '''In progress'''.

    20  * Austin also still has a lingering patch for #7602 to fix a large OS X performance regression, but it's still not merged. The basic gist is that the patch as written works for OS X 10.9. But in OS X 10.9 the TLS implementation changed, invalidating it.

    2222 * `-XTemplateHaskell` should now imply `-dynamic-too`, based on the discussions in #8180. Austin is attempting to fix this by switching it on during module loading but it doesn't quite work yet.
