+Summary: mono is unable to load assemblies with attributes containing arrays
+compile both files together with csc (mcs is currently unable to compile
+the testcase, see #52429) and the run it on mono. it will crash with an
+exception in mono_custom_attrs_construct.
+the problem is in mono/metadata/reflection.c in create_custom_attr. the
+specs say there is the type of the array after the array type (0x1d) which
+it not checked by the runtime.
+also attaching a patch which fixes the problem for me and it also fixes
+customattributebuilder to emit the correct il code (but i'm not sure that
+it uses the correct way to get the array type).
+i also wondered why data_type is checked for the value 0x55, according to
+specs there is no type with that number (or i overlooked it), but the code
+seems to be for the value for 0x50 (Type).
