Oh, wait. This is something to do with *haddock* (I see in the last line) which I may have switched off because it takes so long.
Maybe haddock is compiling the base libraries without -O... but somehow still looking at the SPECiALISE pragmas....
Yes that's it! Without -O we should ignore SPECIALISE pragmas rather than complain that the exporting module doesn't have an INLINABLE pragma (it does, but the exporting module was compiled without -O). Aha. Patch coming
