8.8.x change in lookupModule / findModule semantics?

Sorry for the spam, but I think this is definitely a bug/regression in
ghc-8.8.1 (still present in 8.8.3).

I don't know which commit introduced the problem, but it seems that
getModSummary is no longer reporting the correct ms_hspp_opts, at least for
an in-memory file but it could also be for a file on disk as well (I
haven't excluded that as a possibility).

Here is my workaround

  dflags <- GHC.getSessionDynFlags
  let file = GHC.ms_hspp_file modSum
  buf <- case GHC.ms_hspp_buf modSum of
        Nothing -> liftIO $ hGetStringBuffer file
        Just b -> pure b
  let pragmas = getOptions dflags buf file
  (dflags', _, _) <- parseDynamicFilePragma dflags pragmas
  let modSum' = modSum { GHC.ms_hspp_opts = dflags' }
  let modSum' = modSum
