   askNoErrs m

Then 'errs_var is never read, so any errors are simply lost.

This mistake was then propgated into DsMonad.dsWhenNoErrs, where
it gave rise to Trac #13642.

Thank to Ryan for narrowing it down so sharply.

SpecConstr tries not to specialise indefinitely, and had a
limit (see Note [Limit recursive specialisation]) that made
use of info about whether or not a data constructor was

the limit fire much more often -- and indeed it fired in this
test case, in a situation where specialisation is /highly/

I refactored the test, to look instead at the number of
iterations of the loop of "and now specialise calls that
arise from the specialisation".  Actually less code, and
more robust.

But until now, if that limit was exceeded we discarded all the

Be a bit more eager to inline in a strict context

If we see f (g x), and f is strict, we want to be a bit more eager to
inline g, because it may well expose an eval (on x perhaps) that can
be eliminated or shared.

I saw this in nofib boyer2, function RewriteFuns.onewayunify1.  It
showed up as a consequence of the preceding patch that makes the
simplifier do less work (Trac #13379).  We had

   f d (g x)

where f was a class-op. Previously we simplified both d and
(g x) with a RuleArgCtxt (making g a bit more eager to inline).
But now we simplify only d that way, then fire the rule, and
only then simplify (g x).  Firing the rule produces a strict
funciion, so we want to make a strict function encourage
inlining a bit.

Cure exponential behaviour in the simplifier

This patch nails a Bad Bug exposed in Trac #13379. Roughly,
a deeply-nested application like
   f (f (f ....) ) )
could make the simplifier go exponential -- without producing
an exponential-sized result!

The reason was that we
  - simplified a (big) function argument
  - then decided to inline the function
  - then preInilneUnconditionally the argument
  - and then re-simplified the big argument

And if the "big argument" itself had a similar structure
things could get very bad.

Once I'd understood, it was easy to fix:

* See Note Note [Avoiding exponential behaviour] for an overview

* The key change is that Simplify.simplLam now as a case for
  (isSimplified dup). This is what removes the perf bug.

* But I also made simplCast more parsimonious about simplifying,
  avoiding doing so when the coercion is Refl

* And similarly I now try to avoid simplifying arguments
  where possible before applying rules.
  See Note [Trying rewrite rules]

The latter two points tackle common cases, and in those cases make the
simplifier take fewer iterations.

mmap() syscalls and constants and thus can't be compiled
by i686-w64-mingw32 toolchain.

It's caused by the following part of 'rts/':

  ifeq "$(HostOS_CPP)" "mingw32"
  ALL_DIRS += win32
  ALL_DIRS += posix

In our case _CPP variables are defined this way (
  BuildOS_CPP                = linux
  HostOS_CPP                 = linux
  TargetOS_CPP               = mingw32

RTS should never be built for 'BuildOS' or 'HostOS' as it's

Yet more work on TcSimplify.simplifyInfer

further subtle interactions between
   - Inferring the most general type of a function
   - A partial type signature for that function

That led me into /further/ changes to the shiny new stuff in
TcSimplify.simplifyInfer, decideQuantification, decideMonoTyVars,
and related functions.

Happily, I was able to make some of it quite a bit simpler,

Yet another attempt at inferring the right quantification

TcSimplify.decideQuantification is truly a tricky function!
Trac #13509 showed that we were being over-eager with defaulting
of runtime-rep variables (levity polymorphism), which meant that
a program was wrongly rejected, and with a very odd error message
(c.f. Trac #13530)

I spent an unreasonably long time figuring out how to fix this
in a decent way, and ended up with a major refactoring of
decideQuantification, with a kock-on effect in simplifyInfer.

It is at least a bit more comprehensible now; but I still
can't say I like it.

Simon Peyton Jones [Fri, 10 Mar 2017 11:20:00 +0000 (11:20 +0000)] 
Fix TcSimplify.decideQuantification for kind variables

TcSimplify.decideQuantification was doing the Wrong Thing when
"growing" the type variables to quantify over. We were trying to do
this on a tyvar set where we'd split off the dependent type varaibles;
and we just got it wrong.  A kind variable wasn't being generalised
properly, with confusing knock on consequences.

All this led to Trac #13371 and Trac #13393.

This commit tidies it all up:

* The type TcDepVars is renamed as CandidateQTvs;
  and splitDepVarsOfType to candidateQTyVarsOfType

* The code in TcSimplify.decideQuantification is simpler.
  It no longer does the tricky "grow" stuff over TcDepVars.
  Instead it use ordinary VarSets (thereby eliminating the
  nasty growThetaTyVarsDSet) and uses that to filter the
  result of candidateQTyVarsOfType.

* I documented that candidateQTyVarsOfType returns the type
  variables in a good order in which to quantify, and rewrote
  it to use an accumulator pattern, so that we would predicatably
  get left-to-right ordering.

In doing all this I also made UniqDFM behave a little more nicely:

* When inserting an element that is there already, keep the old tag,
  while still overwriting with the new value.

* This means that when doing udfmToList we get back elements in the
  order they were originally inserted, rather than in reverse order.

It's not a big deal, but in a subsequent commit I use it to improve
the order of type variables in inferred types.

All this led to a lot of error message wibbles:
 - changing the order of quantified variables
 - changing the order in which instances are listed in GHCi
 - changing the tidying of variables in typechecker erors

There's a submodule update for 'array' because one of its tests
has an error-message change.

I may not have associated all of them with the correct commit.
