I have made available a build of GHC 8.2.2 with the config option:
You may find this useful if you are using Ubuntu 16.04 on Windows
Subsystem for Linux.
Although Microsoft has been making gradual progress on the large
address mapping issue, and the situation is much improved, there
is still an extra startup latency of about 13 secs. for applications
that pre-map a large address space as GHC does by default. This makes
the standard GHC 8.2.2 binary unusable for compiling projects of any
non-trivial size on WSL. You may find this GHC 8.2.2 binary more usable.
