Hmm I think this one belongs on the ghc trac.

The version doesn't seem to exist in master either
and only exists in the 8.2 branch.

The commit and bug report it references #14171 doesn't seem to have any
code changes to ghc-prim (that I can see). So I'm not sure why this was

So this version is a bit of a mystery..
