Stop inferring over-polymorphic kinds
Before this patch GHC was trying to be too clever
(Trac Trac #16344); it succeeded in kind-checking this
data T ka (a::ka) b = MkT (T Type Int Bool) (T (Type -> Type) Maybe Bool)
As Note [No polymorphic recursion] discusses, the "solution" was
horribly fragile. So this patch deletes the key lines in
TcHsType, and a wodge of supporting stuff in the renamer.
There were two regressions, both the same: a closed type family
decl like this (T12785b) does not have a CUSK:
type family Payload (n :: Peano) (s :: HTree n x) where Payload Z (Point a) = a Payload (S n) (a `Branch` stru) = a
To kind-check the equations we need a dependent kind for
Payload, and we don't get that any more. Solution: make it
a CUSK by giving the result kind -- probably a good thing anyway.
The other case (T12442) was very similar: a close type family
declaration without a CUSK.
