Simonmar points out that there are a few follow-up tasks after Phab:D5169:

  1. We should build these at installation time, so they don't have to go into the binary distribution (the same goes for the vanilla way libHSfoo.o files)
  2. This also needs to be done in Hadrian

Milestone: 8.8.1
Priority: normalhighest

At least point (2) is a blocker for 8.8.1, and we ought to do (1) too.

For (2), I put up Phab:D5270 to build profiling LibGhci in Hadrian as well.

For (1), is LibGhci only used by statically linked ghci? So only windows distribution is affected by this?

comment:5 Changed 10 months ago by simonmar

For (1), these would be used by ghc -fextenral-interpreter -prof, and also any statically-linked binary that uses the GHC API.

comment:6 Changed 8 months ago by watashi is now merged. We will build p_o in hadrain as well, but this only happens when dynamicGhcPrograms = return False. This behavior is different from make. Given that libghci can be used by external interpreter, shall we still build it even when dynamicGhcPrograms is true?

In 9ea8dcea/ghc:

Hadrian: merge sections in profiling _p.a to .p_o for ghci

This is the hadrain version of {D5169}

* We build squashed .o and .p_o for ghci when `dynamicGhcPrograms` is
* We no longer build them for rts as ghci never loads it

we need for cabal to copy
the built `.p_o` file.

Test Plan:
$ grep dynamicGhc hadrian/UserSettings.hs
  , dynamicGhcPrograms = return False
$ touch ...
$ hadrian/ --flavour=user -j --digest-or
$ find _build/stage1/libraries/ -name 'HS*-*.*o' | wc
     62      62    3664

$ grep -C3 dynamicGhc hadrian/UserSettings.hs
userFlavour :: Flavour
userFlavour = performanceFlavour
  { name = "user"
  , dynamicGhcPrograms = return False
$ hadrian/ -j --flavour=user test --verbose
