Hmm, now, when I'm trying to reproduce things I don't see haddock 
producing any assembly output let alone split it when using 7.8rc2 haddock.

It seemed to me some time ago haddock became slow when processing a 
package built with --enable-split-objs and I've decided to look into 
things and discovered haddock wants .hi interface files and produces 
assembly output to produce these interface files.

I was extremely surprised, rechecked things several times and saw the 
same picture.

Now I can't reproduce this at all.

If haddock never produced .hi interface files and/or assembly output 
then that was some mental aberration and the whole story can be dropped.
