The code that triggered https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4384 is once
again compiling. Since a long time (2011).

We currently have cycles in Phobos without realizing it because of this. We
need to rethink how we do cycle detection. It was reworked in this PR:

However, one problem with this is a module with no ctors is once again marked
as being "visited", so if it's needed 2+ times for a cycle, the cycle goes

I don't want to necessarily go back to the alloca version, but perhaps we can
remove the stack-based search and use recursion once again. I'm almost certain
we will need at least 2x number of modules, but I'm not sure the limit. We also
have to prevent infinite loops, which is why the original code was so weird.
