I think only work needs to go into cabal now. GHCs point of concern here
is that it ships with a patched cabal for this when the patch does get
crafted rather than only dumped onto the master branch. It's already
fixed on Haddock side and I believe the change is on 7.10 branch.

So I guess this is just a FYI that something is broken and we're
awaiting cabal patch.
