That commit is not in 2.14.1. Do you have any benchmarks to show the
speedup? If the commit does some significant speedup, I'm not against
backporting it into Haddock released with 7.8.2 (and there is at least 1
other fix I want to get into 7.8.2) but we pretty much closed the
2.14.1, it's up on Hackage and everything and that's what's planned to
ship with 7.8.1.
