Latest commit ad9bf96 Sep 6, 2013 @rwbarton rwbarton committed with tibbe Make argument types in popcnt.c match declared primop types
On 64-bit Mac OS, gcc 4.2 (which comes with Xcode 4.6) generates code
that assumes that an argument that is smaller than the register
it is passed in has been sign- or zero-extended. But ghc thinks
the types of the PopCnt*Op primops are Word# -> Word#, so it passes
the entire argument word to the hs_popcnt* function as though it was
declared to have an argument of type StgWord. Segfaults ensue.

The easiest fix is to sidestep all this zero-extension business
by declaring the hs_popcnt* functions to take a whole StgWord (when their
argument would fit in a register), thereby matching the list of primops.

Fixes #7684.
