Prefer builtin commands to macros in GHCi command resolution (#3858)

Current precedence rules in GHCi are that:

 * User macros that are defined earlier are preferred to those that
   are defined earlier on

with "i" would override the standard :info command whenever the user typed
the abbreviated command :i.

are always preferred to things defined later. The builtin commands are logically
defined earliest of all (when GHCi starts) so they always take precedence.

Pop OS X stack padding even if the foreign call is stdcall (#5052)

The problem was that the codegen for foreign calls makes sure the stack

foreign call is cdecl, that padding gets popped after the call, but if the
convention is stdcall then it doesn't generate any popping code at all.

However, this is incorrect because the stdcall only promises to pop the
arguments, not the padding. The fix is to generate code to pop the padding
(if any) on OS X.
