This is fantastic!

On the iOS front I have D206 (fixing dead-strip) hanging in phabricator on the
testsuite makefile, due do the libgmp.10 dependency. See https://phabricator.haskell.org/D206

I'd really like to have this get into 7.10 as well.  So we do not need to disable
deadstripping anymore for iOS targets.
