but that’s a deadlock then: The Debian maintainers wait for you to
upgrade your package in order to get new versions of GHC and libraries
into testing while you wait for Debian to ship newer GHC and
libraries... Clearly something is broken here :-)

You can install a more recent version of GHC independently of the
Debian packages and use that to make sure your packages work with
reasonable new dependencies. I suggest to at least aim for
compatibility with stackage LTS – this way, you are shielded from
unrelated build failures in your dependencies.
