Including Cabal- in GHC 7.8.4

I'm going to make a bugfix release on the Cabal 1.18 branch the next few
days. The release candidate is already out.

Here are the commits:

e4660ff17f923e999080e21a20062d0df8d24bb6 The download dir on
fb3db6313b43632fdc9d598140b3eb5a681eb90b Bump Cabal version number to
12a698b6db8a2ca55367c54611a269048f4cef7b Build C sources with -fPIC when
GHC is using dynamic libraries.

The only one of interest is that we now pass -fPIC when needed.

Should we include this bugfix release in the GHC release? It's quite
difficult for some users to upgrade from the Cabal version that ships with
GHC so included the newest one makes sense.

P.S. I'm looking to make a 1.22 release soon as well, for inclusion in GHC
