The GHC 8.0 release is approaching. Nothing much seems to have
changed between GHC 8.0 rc2 and rc3, so it's probably time
to get these patches into mainline.

Some dependencies haven't been updated yet so anyone trying
this will need to pass --allow-newer to cabal, and also apply
https://github.com/yesodweb/Shelly.hs/pull/119 to shelly
if building the tests.

I tried with GHC 8.0 rc3 and indeed these patches are necessary. Accepted.
