+Summary: [PATCH] allow string array for attribute parameter type
+Currently mcs does not allow string array type as a parameter type, while
+it is allowed:
+24.1.3 Attribute parameter types
+The types of positional and named parameters for an attribute class are
+limited to the attribute parameter
+types, which are:
+• One of the following types: bool, byte, char, double, float, int, long,
+short, string.
+• The type object.
+• The type System.Type.
+• An enum type, provided it has public accessibility and the types in which
+it is nested (if any) also have
+public accessibility.
+• Single-dimensional arrays of the above types.
+---- repro ----
+using System;
+class FooAttribute : Attribute
+        public string [] Values;
+        public FooAttribute ()
+        {
+        }
+[Foo (Values = new string [] {"foo", "bar", "baz"})]
+class Test
+        public static void Main () {}
+Actual Results:
+test-453.cs(13,2): error CS0655: `Values' is not a valid named attribute
+argument because it is not a valid attribute parameter type.
+Expected Results:
+Compiles successfully.
+Attaching a fix.
