Yay!  And thanks to you for being patient enough to get this to trunk!

We've discussed some followup work that should now be possible, amongst it enabling (parts of) free-lang-data even if we are not writing LTO bytecode. Then refactoring dwarf2out to separate early/late dwarf generation better.  And finally bring the LTO bits I was working on to a mergeable state.  And after that fix how we deal with abstract instances (for in lining).
