Bound Threads
=============

Introduce a way to use foreign libraries that rely on thread local state
from multiple threads (mainly affects the threaded RTS).

See the file threads.tex in CVS at haskell-report/ffi/threads.tex
(not entirely finished yet) for a definition of this extension. A less formal
description is also found in the documentation of Control.Concurrent.

The changes mostly affect the THREADED_RTS (./configure --enable-threaded-rts),
except for saving & restoring errno on a per-TSO basis, which is also necessary
for the non-threaded RTS (a bugfix).

Detailed list of changes
------------------------

- errno is saved in the TSO object and restored when necessary:
ghc/includes/TSO.h, ghc/rts/Interpreter.c, ghc/rts/Schedule.c

- rts_mainLazyIO is no longer needed, main is no special case anymore
ghc/includes/RtsAPI.h, ghc/rts/RtsAPI.c, ghc/rts/Main.c, ghc/rts/Weak.c

- passCapability: a new function that releases the capability and "passes"
  it to a specific OS thread:
ghc/rts/Capability.h ghc/rts/Capability.c

- waitThread(), scheduleWaitThread() and schedule() get an optional
  Capability *initialCapability passed as an argument:
ghc/includes/SchedAPI.h, ghc/rts/Schedule.c, ghc/rts/RtsAPI.c

- Bound Thread scheduling (that's what this is all about):
ghc/rts/Schedule.h, ghc/rts/Schedule.c

- new Primop isCurrentThreadBound#:
ghc/compiler/prelude/primops.txt.pp, ghc/includes/PrimOps.h, ghc/rts/PrimOps.hc,
ghc/rts/Schedule.h, ghc/rts/Schedule.c

- a simple function, rtsSupportsBoundThreads, that returns true if THREADED_RTS
  is defined:
ghc/rts/Schedule.h, ghc/rts/Schedule.c

- a new implementation of forkProcess (the old implementation stays in place
  for the non-threaded case). Partially broken; works for the standard
  fork-and-exec case, but not for much else. A proper forkProcess is
  really next to impossible to implement:
ghc/rts/Schedule.c

- Library support for bound threads:
    Control.Concurrent.
      rtsSupportsBoundThreads, isCurrentThreadBound, forkOS,
      runInBoundThread, runInUnboundThread
libraries/base/Control/Concurrent.hs, libraries/base/Makefile,
libraries/base/include/HsBase.h, libraries/base/cbits/forkOS.c (new file)

Quick hack to work around the dynamic exception crashes in GHCi.  The
problem is this: the Data.Typeable library (Data.Dymamic in previous
versions of GHC) maintains an internal cache mapping type names to
unique numbers, and this cache is used for fast comparisons on
TypeReps.  In GHCi, there are actually two versions of the
Data.Typeable library loaded: one linked to GHCi itself, and the other
dynamically loaded, so there are two copies of the hash tables.

The problem is that if we have a Dynamic value generated using one set
of hash tables, it will erroneously appear to be of a different type
when the other hash tables are used.

The hack I've instigated is to use the central RTS genSym (which
already exists) to generate the unique Ids, so that the two copies of
the dynamic library will be using distinct Ids, and Dynamics from one
will never be recognisable to the other.
