Looking for a recent error reporting change

Is there a reason you want to stick with 8.6.5?

One way to find what you want is to use git-bisect to find the commit that made the change.  I think various people have automated setups for this.

Subject: Looking for a recent error reporting change

Hi.  In GHC 8.6.5, if I compile a main module that both fails to define `main` and also contains other errors, the other errors are not reported because GHC aborts after realizing that there is no `main`.  In GHC 8.10.1, all errors are reported.  I'm looking for where this change was made, in the hopes that it's easy to backport to a local branch of GHC 8.6.5.  Does anyone know off-hand?
