Comment (by guest):

 GHC now always uses UTF-8 for the output of `ghc-pkg dump`, and the input
 to `ghc-pkg register` and `ghc-pkg update`.

   * Use UTF-8 explicitly for InstalledPackageInfo
   So ghc-pkg register/update takes input in UTF-8, and ghc-pkg dump
   outputs in UTF-8.  Textual package config files in the package DB are
   assumed to be in UTF-8.

     M ./utils/ghc-pkg/Main.hs -7 +26

 This patch will be merged into 6.12.1.

 Also the double-free error reported above is fixed.
