#5026 closed bug (fixed)

+RTS -G1 is broken

A number of tests fail with +RTS -G1, including cgrun026. I had a quick look into it: This code in GarbageCollect:

  if (RtsFlags.GcFlags.generations == 1) {
      if (g0->blocks != NULL) {
          g0->blocks = NULL;

doesn't set:

          g0->n_blocks = 0;

so causes an:

    ASSERT(countBlocks(gen->blocks) == gen->n_blocks);

test in Sanity to fail. Presumably setting n_blocks to 0 is the right thing to do.

Then, running with -DS, LOOKS_LIKE_INFO_PTR ends up being passed 0xAA...AA. I haven't looked further into this yet.

Once fixed, add a test (or perhaps make the codegen tests all be run with +RTS -G1?)
