Fix #1709: do not expose the worker for a loop-breaker

View patterns, record wildcards, and record puns
This patch implements three new features:
* view patterns (syntax: expression -> pat in a pattern)
* working versions of record wildcards and record puns
See the manual for detailed descriptions.

Other minor observable changes:
* There is a check prohibiting local fixity declarations
  when the variable being fixed is not defined in the same let
* The warn-unused-binds option now reports warnings for do and mdo stmts

Implementation notes:

* The pattern renamer is now in its own module, RnPat, and the
implementation is now in a CPS style so that the correct context is
delivered to pattern expressions.

* These features required a fairly major upheaval to the renamer.
Whereas the old version used to collect up all the bindings from a let
(or top-level, or recursive do statement, ...) and put them into scope
before renaming anything, the new version does the collection as it
renames.  This allows us to do the right thing with record wildcard
patterns (which need to be expanded to see what names should be
collected), and it allows us to implement the desired semantics for view
patterns in lets.  This change had a bunch of domino effects brought on
by fiddling with the top-level renaming.

* Prior to this patch, there was a tricky bug in mkRecordSelId in HEAD,
which did not maintain the invariant necessary for loadDecl.  See note

it generated bogus code for cholewo-eval.

This patch is still far from entirely satisfactory.  There are
too many places where invariants are unclear, and the code is

- get rid of extractLocalResults (which was always suspicious)

- instead, treat the 'refinement' along with 'givens', by

Finally, I managed to squash an infamous bug in :print

  It turns out the newtype handling code in :print
  was slipping non mutable Tyvars in the types reconstructed.
  The error message eventually produced was rather obscure:

  *** Exception: No match in record selector Var.tcTyVarDetails

   my life much easier.

FIX #1038: failure of selector-thunk machinery to do its job
After a couple of abortive attempts, I think I've got this right.
When the GC sees a chain of the form

   snd (_, snd (_, snd (_, ...)))

it can now deal with an arbitrary nesting depth, whereas previously it
had a depth limit which was necessitated by the use of recursion.  Now
we chain all the selector thunks together in the heap, and go back and
update them all when we find the value at the end of the chain.

While I was here I removed some old cruft in eval_thunk_selector()
which was carefully manintaing invariants that aren't necessary any
more, the main one being that evacuate() can safely be passed a
to-space pointer now.

In addition to validate I've tested building a stage3 compiler with
and without +RTS -c, so I'm reasonably sure this is safe.

Fix bug #1725 (Haddock links between packages)
Resolving this bug is a bit tricky, it boils down to the question: Should the
Haddock links between packages include the package version or not?

Pro: We can differentiate between various versions of the same package,
installed all at once. (How often does this really happen in practice?)

Cons: When package A refers to a package B, and B is later upgraded, links
in A's documentation will break. Furthermore, if an *additional* version of
B is installed, which version should A refer to?

Because IMHO it is not clear what to do when version numbers are included,
let's leave them out. If somebody has a better idea, feel free to submit a
better patch.

Unbreak "dist" target for fresh trees

out and configured, but *not* built. Of course you will need Happy for such a
source distro later, but at least the freedom to do this is important.

The ultimate goal should be that something like "make dist" will work in a
freshly checked out tree, with no prerequisite steps (this is very common in
most projects). We should move towards that goal, not away from it...
