Template Haskell's Exact names don't shadow correctly

Having two Exact names shadow one another confuses the renamer. In particular, if an Exact name is used twice in kind annotations of a type declaration, the hsq_implicit field of the HsQTyVars gets a duplicate. I've been unable to cause harm with this, but it's definitely wrong as is.

Fix en route.
