'DynFlag'-free version of 'mkParserFlags'

This is despite the fact that we only really need

  • language extension flags
  • warning flags
  • a handful of boolean options

The new mkParserFlags' function makes is easier to directly construct
a ParserFlags. Furthermore, since pExtsBitmap is just a footgun,
I've gone ahead and made ParserFlags an abstract type.
