Description

The docs at

http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/7.4.2/html/users_guide/special-ids.html

describe what e.g. the inline function does, but they don't describe how to import the function. The docs could even be interpreted as suggesting that you should import GHC.Prim. I suggest we either update those docs or the ones in the GHC.Prim module to explains how to import these functions (i.e. through GHC.Exts).

Good point. Easy to fix. Ian could you update the docs to point to GHC.Exts (which is the approved import point for all such functions) instead? Thanks.
