3 years agoDeriving Functor-like classes should unify kind variables
RyanGlScott [Mon, 11 Apr 2016 00:53:23 +0000 (02:53 +0200)] 
Deriving Functor-like classes should unify kind variables

While the deriving machinery always unifies the kind of the typeclass
argument with the kind of the datatype, this proves not to be sufficient
to produce well kinded instances for some poly-kinded datatypes. For

newtype Compose (f :: k2 -> *) (g :: k1 -> k2) (a :: k1)
  = Compose (f (g a)) deriving Functor

would fail because only `k1` would get unified with `*`, causing the
ill kinded instance to be generated:

instance (Functor (f :: k2 -> *), Functor (g :: * -> k2)) =>
  Functor (Compose f g) where ...

To prevent this, we need to take the subtypes and unify their kinds with
`* -> *`.

3 years agoChange runtime linker to perform lazy loading of symbols/sections
Tamar Christina [Sun, 10 Apr 2016 22:38:42 +0000 (00:38 +0200)] 
Change runtime linker to perform lazy loading of symbols/sections

The Runtime Linker is currently eagerly loading all object files on all
platforms which do not use the system linker for `GHCi`.

The problem with this approach is that it requires all symbols to be
found.  Even those of functions never used/called. This makes the number
of libraries required to link things like `mingwex` quite high.

To work around this the `rts` was relying on a trick. It itself was
compiled with `MingW64-w`'s `GCC`. So it was already linked against
`mingwex`.  As such, it re-exported the symbols from itself.

While this worked it made it impossible to link against `mingwex` in
user libraries. And with this means no `C99` code could ever run in
`GHCi` on Windows without having the required symbols re-exported from
the rts.

Consequently this rules out a large number of packages on Windows.
SDL2, HMatrix etc.

After talking with @rwbarton I have taken the approach of loading entire
object files when a symbol is needed instead of doing the dependency
tracking on a per symbol basis. This is a lot less fragile and a lot
less complicated to implement.

The changes come down to the following steps:

1) modify the linker to and introduce a new state for ObjectCode:
   `Needed`.  A Needed object is one that is required for the linking to
   succeed.  The initial set consists of all Object files passed as
   arguments to the link.

2) Change `ObjectCode`'s to be indexed but not initialized or resolved.
   This means we know where we would load the symbols,
   but haven't actually done so.

3) Mark any `ObjectCode` belonging to `.o` passed as argument
   as required: ObjectState `NEEDED`.

4) During `Resolve` object calls, mark all `ObjectCode`
   containing the required symbols as `NEEDED`

5) During `lookupSymbol` lookups, (which is called from `linkExpr`
   and `linkDecl` in `GHCI.hs`) is the symbol is in a not-yet-loaded
   `ObjectCode` then load the `ObjectCode` on demand and return the
   address of the symbol. Otherwise produce an unresolved symbols error
   as expected.

6) On `unloadObj` we then change the state of the object and remove
   it's symbols from the `reqSymHash` table so it can be reloaded.

This change affects all platforms and OSes which use the runtime linker.
It seems there are no real perf tests for `GHCi`, but performance
shouldn't be impacted much. We gain a lot of time not loading all `obj`
files, and we lose some time in `lookupSymbol` when we're finding
sections that have to be loaded. The actual finding itself is O(1)
(Assuming the hashtnl is perfect)

It also consumes slighly more memory as instead of storing just the
address of a symbol I also store some other information, like if the
symbol is weak or not.

This change will break any packages relying on renamed POSIX functions
that were re-named and re-exported by the rts. Any packages following
the proper naming for functions as found on MSDN will work fine.

Test Plan: ./validate on all platforms which use the Runtime linker.

Previously, deriving `Generic(1)` bailed out when attempting to
instantiate visible type parameters (#5939), but this instantiation
check was quite fragile and doesn't interact well with `-XTypeInType`.
It has been decided that `Generic(1)` shouldn't be subjected to this
check anyway, so it has been removed, and `gen_Generic_binds`'s
machinery has been updated to substitute the type variables in a
generated `Rep`/`Rep1` instance with the user-supplied type arguments.

In addition, this also refactors `Condition` in `TcDeriv` a bit. Namely,
since we no longer need `tc_args` to check any conditions, the `[Type]`
component of `Condition` has been removed.

Fix suggestions for unbound variables (#11680)

When the typechecker generates the error message for an out-of-scope

variable is unbound, not the GlobalRdrEnv which is available at the time
the error is reported.  Doing so ensures we do not provide suggestions
which themselves are out-of-scope (because they are bound in a later
inter-splice group).

Nonetheless, we do note in the error message if an unambiguous, exact
match to the out-of-scope variable is found in a later inter-splice
group, and we specify where that match is not in scope.

3 years agoDon't infer CallStacks
Eric Seidel [Mon, 4 Apr 2016 10:05:01 +0000 (12:05 +0200)] 
Don't infer CallStacks

We originally wanted CallStacks to be opt-in, but dealing with let
binders complicated things, forcing us to infer CallStacks. It turns
out that the inference is actually unnecessary though, we can let the
wanted CallStacks bubble up to the outer context by refusing to
quantify over them. Eventually they'll be solved from a given CallStack
or defaulted to the empty CallStack if they reach the top.

So this patch prevents GHC from quantifying over CallStacks, getting us
back to the original plan. There's a small ugliness to do with
PartialTypeSignatures, if the partial theta contains a CallStack
constraint, we *do* want to quantify over the CallStack; the user asked
us to!

Note that this means that

  foo :: _ => CallStack
  foo = getCallStack callStack

will be an *empty* CallStack, since we won't infer a CallStack for the
hole in the theta. I think this is the right move though, since we want
CallStacks to be opt-in. One can always write

  foo :: (HasCallStack, _) => CallStack
  foo = getCallStack callStack

to get the CallStack and still have GHC infer the rest of the theta.

3 years agoAutoconf: detect and set CFLAGS/CPPFLAGS needed for C99 mode
Herbert Valerio Riedel [Mon, 28 Mar 2016 12:34:22 +0000 (14:34 +0200)] 
Autoconf: detect and set CFLAGS/CPPFLAGS needed for C99 mode

This is the first phase of addressing #11757 which aims to make C99
support a base-line requirement for GHC and clean up the code-base to
use C99 facilities when sensible.

This patch exploits the logic/heuristic used by `AC_PROG_CC_C99` to
determine the flags needed in case the C compiler isn't able to compile
C99 code in its current mode. We can't use `AC_PROG_CC_C99` directly
though because GHC's build-system expects CC to contain a filename
without any flags, while `AC_PROG_CC_C99` would e.g. result in
`CC="gcc -std=gnu99"`. Morever, we support different `CC`s for
stage0/1/2, so we need a version of `AC_PROG_CC_C99` for which we can
specify the `CC`/`CFLAGS` variables to operate on. This is what
`FP_SET_CFLAGS_C99` does.

Note that Clang has been defaulting to C99+ for a long time, while GCC 5
defaults to C99+ as well. So this has mostly an affect on older GCCs
versions prior to 5.0 and possibly compilers other than GCC/Clang (which
are not officially supported for building GHC anyway).

3 years agoDrop Xcode 4.1 hack and fix ignored CC var issue
Herbert Valerio Riedel [Mon, 28 Mar 2016 10:55:21 +0000 (12:55 +0200)] 
Drop Xcode 4.1 hack and fix ignored CC var issue

Xcode 4.1 was released back in 2011 for Mac OSX 10.6/10.7.
However, OSX 10.7 reached EOL sometime around the end of 2014.
So this `--with-gcc-4.2` hack shouldn't be needed anymore.

Moreover, this patch changes ./configure to honor the CC env-var
again (and thus fix #11231) while giving `--with-gcc=...` a higher
priority over `CC=...`.

So the following 3 invocations are equivalent now:

  CC=... ./configure
  ./configure CC=...
  ./configure --with-gcc=...

Since `--with-{gcc,clang}=...` is a misnomer (as is made apparent by
`--with-gcc=clang` or `--with-clang=gcc`), this would give us a neutral
and idiomatic way to tell ./configure which C compiler to use.

Moreover, `./configure --help` says at the end of its output:

  Some influential environment variables:
    CC C compiler command
    CFLAGS C compiler flags
    LDFLAGS linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
nonstandard directory <lib dir>
    LIBS libraries to pass to the linker, e.g. -l<library>
    CPPFLAGS (Objective) C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if
you have headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
    CPP C preprocessor

  Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
  it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.

Consequently, by honoring CC=... (rather than ignoring it) we increase
consistency and reduce user confusion. Ideally, CC=... would become the
recommended way to set the C compiler, and `--with-{clang,gcc}=...`
would be demoted to legacy aliases.

However, IRIX's last software update was in 2006 and support ended
around 2013 according to [1], so it's considered an extinct platform by
now. So this commit message is effectively an obituary for GHC's IRIX
