Using old code generator

I'm looking for a workaround for #7574  (I run into it when trying to
build the 'statistics' package with profiling enabled with GHC HEAD.)
The symptom is
ghc-stage2: panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
(GHC version 7.7.20130407 for i386-unknown-linux):
allocateRegsAndSpill: Cannot read from uninitialized register
Do I understand correctly that this bug is specific to the new codegen?
If so, is it possible to ask the compiler to use the old codegen?
Is it okay to mix together packages compiled with both codegens?
