[m-dev.] Integrating HGC with Mercury

I'm working on integrating HGC (the new garbage collector) with Mercury.
HGC needs to know about possible global roots into the heap; the ones
I've identified are:

- the fake reg array;
- mutables;
- the stacks (detstack, nondetstack, and trail);
- thread contexts (I'm not really worried about .par grades in the first
  place, but it would be good to know about these roots for later).

Have I missed anything?

Any help would be much appreciated!
