OK would someone like to add the same warning-suppression to ghc.mk as I did for bytestring?

It is still failing, but now on the parallel and stm libraries.

Note that `validate --fast` skips those packages, but plain `./validate` doesn't, and Phabricator/Harbormaster runs plain `./validate`.

parallel and stm are 'extra' packages, and the build system no longer builds those by default. To build them, set `BUILD_EXTRA_PKGS=YES` in mk/build.mk<http://build.mk>.

I'm sorry if this caused confusion. It's explained on the wiki now:

Validating now, but have to go to London for a few hrs.  Meanwhile use –Wwarn!

Yurgh.  I committed a patch but my validate had –Wwarn by mistake.  So there are warnings in base (and binary actually).  I will sort them out tomorrow.
Could revert and re-apply but doesn’t seem worth it.
