Hi Luite,

I applied my patches only to primitive package stored as a boot library in GHC repositories. My 
changes should probably be ported upstream to main repo of primitive package, but I admit I don't 
know what the workflow for this is.

If you desperately need latest version of primitive working with GHC HEAD you can port my changes 
manually - it's only three lines of code!
