Ticket #4476 (closed bug: fixed)
Event log header: Startup event length wrong
|Reported by:||scpmw||Owned by:||simonmar|

GHC currently writes 0 as the length of the EVENT_STARTUP event. That's not true, as the event writes the number of capabilities as data (see EventLog.c:282). ghc-event doesn't notice because the format is hard-coded there and never gets checked.
Fix is obviously pretty easy, see attachment.
