I believe this is incorrect.  I spoke with Simon Peyton-Jones at the
2009 Haskell Symposium, and we discussed John Dias actively working on
C-- for the GHC native code gen (NCG) backend.

Also, this wiki page supports my claim.
"Cmm is the basis for the future of GHC, Native Code Generation, and
if you are interested in hacking Cmm at least this page might help
reduce your learning curve."

Thanks.
