Moving hadrian to submodule

Great! A submodule makes a lot more sense to me, at least short term. I
would hope that medium term the development processes of GHC-as-a-whole and
Hadrian(-a-part-of-GHC) can converge, so that a submodule is no longer
necessary. Submodules do have their downsides and it would be odd for such
a core part as the build system to be kept external to the main repo.
