What makes GHC's GC good for purely functional workloads?

Apologies if this has been asked before.  In some ways
GHC's garbage collectors are very traditional, so I was
wondering what magic dust makes it do better in Haskelly
workloads (e.g. whereas you'd need to do a bit more work
in the JVM to make some allocation pattern play nice.)
