GHC 7.10.1 html docs all flat?

Hi Randy,

This is due to an upstream Haddock bug I didn't manage to fix before
the release; see - we
really need to fix this for 7.10.2.

I believe the problem we need to fix is in Haddock. The fact that the
non-hierarchical version appears on the website is just so people can
browse it (and FWIW, the 'correct links' are there, but obviously the
hyperlinks *to* the proper places are broken...)
