HEADS-UP: testsuite has been folded into ghc; back up your old testsuite/ folder!

Herbert Valerio Riedel
Hello *,

It's finally done; effective immediately, the testsuite/ folder is now
tracked as part of ghc.git (for the master branch)

*IMPORTANT* If there's any chance you have something importing lying
around in your testsuite/ please move it out of the way preemptively
(e.g. with 'mv testsuite/ testsuite-old/') *before* you perform a 'git
pull' or 'sync-all pull' on ghc.git. Even though there are some
safe-guards in place, those might not be 100% effective, so better safe
than sorry.

As only the `master` branch of testsuite.git has been merged, those of
you who had wip/ branches or similar in testsuite.git need to handle
those yourselves. Should you need assistance with bringing over those
commits from testsuite.git into ghc.git (or if there's anything else
that's now broken because of this change), please let me and/or Austin a
line, so we can assist you.

attempt"[1] announcing this step.
