 do not emit a warning if the .haddock file is missing
 As it is quite common on Debian installations to install the -dev package
 without the -doc package.

 use native x86_64 instructions on x32
 This patch enables a few native 64-bit integer instructions
 on x32 which are available on this architecture despite using
 32-bit pointers. These instructions are present on x86_64 but
 not on x86 and ghc checks the size of (void *) to determine
 that. This method fails on x32 since despite using 32-bit
 pointers and hence sizeof(void *) == 4, it still uses the
 full x86_64 instruction set and software-emulated variants
 of the aforementioned 64-bit integer instructions are
 therefore not present in the toolchain which will make ghc
 fail to build on x32.

 use the stage1 binaries for install
 In order to be able to perform a cross-build, we need to use
 the stage1 binaries during installation. Both ghc and ghc-pkg
 are run during the install target and therefore must be able
 to run on the build machine.

fix build using unregisterised v8.6 | (download)

 allow unregisterised ghc-8.6 to build newer ghc
 Commit af9b744bbf1 introduced a regression stopping existing unregisterised
 compilers from being able to compile newer versions of GHC. The problem is
 that the bootstrap compiler uses the newer `includes/stg/MiscClosures.h` file
 where some defines have been renamed, resulting in the following error:
.
 error: ‘stg_atomicModifyMutVarzh’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘stg_atomicModifyMutVar2zh’?
.
 For more information, see https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/issues/17111.
.
 This patch can be removed, once ghc-8.6 is no longer the bootstrap compiler.

 [patch] fix endian handling w.r.t. cpp macro words_bigendian

Include header file `ghcautoconf.h` where the CPP macro
`WORDS_BIGENDIAN` is defined. This finally fixes #17337 (in conjunction
with commit 6c59cc71dc).

 [patch] ffi: fix pass small ints in foreign call wrappers

The Haskell calling convention requires integer parameters smaller
than wordsize to be promoted to wordsize (where the upper bits are
don't care). To access such small integer parameter read a word from
the parameter array and then cast that word to the small integer
target type.

Fixes #15933
