Implement a new heap-tuning option: -H

-H alone causes the RTS to use a larger nursery, but without exceeding

off GC time against locality: the default setting is to use a
fixed-size 512k nursery, but this is sometimes worse than using a very
large nursery despite the worse locality.

Not all programs get faster, but some programs that use large heaps do
much better with -H.  e.g. this helps a lot with #3061 (binary-trees),
though not as much as specifying -H<large>.  Typically using -H<large>
is better than plain -H, because the runtime doesn't know ahead of
time how much memory you want to use.

Should -H be on by default?  I'm not sure, it makes some programs go
slower, but others go faster.

threadStackOverflow: check whether stack squeezing released some stack (#3677)

In a stack overflow situation, stack squeezing may reduce the stack
size, but we don't know whether it has been reduced enough for the
stack check to succeed if we try again.  Fortunately stack squeezing
is idempotent, so all we need to do is record whether *any* squeezing
happened.  If we are at the stack's absolute -K limit, and stack
squeezing happened, then we try running the thread again.

We also want to avoid enlarging the stack if squeezing has already
released some of it.  However, we don't want to get into a
pathalogical situation where a thread has a nearly full stack (near
its current limit, but not near the absolute -K limit), keeps
allocating a little bit, squeezing removes a little bit, and then it
runs again.  So to avoid this, if we squeezed *and* there is still
less than BLOCK_SIZE_W words free, then we enlarge the stack anyway.

it also makes it complete, and that's great for supercompilation; or indeed
any whole-program work.

Consequences:
  * Interface files need to record loop-breaker-hood.  (Previously,
    loop breakers were never exposed, so that info wasn't necessary.)
    Hence a small interface file format change.

  * When inlining, must check loop-breaker-hood. (Previously, loop
    breakers didn't have an unfolding at all, so no need to check.)

  * Ditto in exprIsConApp_maybe.  Roman actually tripped this bug,
    because a DFun, which had an unfolding, was also a loop breaker

  * TidyPgm.tidyIdInfo must be careful to preserve loop-breaker-hood

use Id.realIdUnfolding.
