Two improvements to the SMP runtime:
- support for 'par', aka sparks. Load balancing is very primitive
right now, but I have seen programs that go faster using par.
- support for backing off when a thread is found to be duplicating
a computation currently underway in another thread. This also
fixes some instability in SMP, because it turned out that when
an update frame points to an indirection, which can happen if
a thunk is under evaluation in multiple threads, then after GC
has shorted out the indirection the update will trash the value.
Now we suspend the duplicate computation to the heap before this
- stack squeezing is separate from lazy blackholing, and now only
happens if there's a reasonable amount of squeezing to be done
in relation to the number of words of stack that have to be moved.
This means we won't try to shift 10Mb of stack just to save 2
words at the bottom (it probably never happened, but still).
- update frames are now marked when they have been visited by lazy
blackholing, as per the SMP paper.
- cleaned up raiseAsync() a bit.
