Windows 10 Creators Update will break GHC (Was FW: GHC on Windows 10 15019+)

when the Creators Update finally hits Windows 10 stable on April 11th (next
week), every currently available GHC will be broken by it.

See [1] for the previous discussion, [2] and [3] for the tickets discussing
this. From what I read on the GHC 8.2 status wiki page, there might be an
interval of some weeks where it will not be possible to compile a Haskell
program on any up-to-date Windows 10 installation.

I just wanted to raise awareness and offer myself to do guided grunt work
(if there is any) to push out a hotfix/inplace patch release for GHC 8.0.2.
