Merge latest hpy
Produce better error messages for IndentationErrors (showing statement and line that opened the block that is missing), AttributeErrors and NameErrors (showing suggestions which name could have been meant instead in case of typos). This follows the upcoming CPython 3.10 features.
distutils.command.install schema for the python
implementation (issue 3436)
Avoid overflow in
struct.pack_into error message (BPO 30245)
Reduce memory allocations at runtime caused by interpreter-internal identifiers.
Speep up cached imports by re-implementing (a subset of) BPO-22557. This brings it very close to PyPy2 standards.
Make creation and destruction of many files cheaper: don’t call
streams that had their
.close() method called (and aren’t user defined
sys.implementation._multiarch field like CPython on linux, darwin via
lib_pypy/_sysconfigdata__*.py file like CPython on linux, darwin

sysconfig._generate_posix_vars() (issue 3483).
Update HPy backend to 0.0.2
Implement missing PyDateTimeAPI functions related to timezones (issue 3320)
Use libffi v3.3 like CPython instead of the very old
libffi_msvc on windows

Use the cpyext error indicator to implement HPy exceptions
