 Summary: get rid of global generics caches in metadata.c
 metadata.c contains some hash tables used by the generics code. These
 hash tables are:
 - unsynchronized
 - contain data which most likely 'belong' to an assembly.
 So these tables should be:
 - protected by locks
 - moved to MonoImage.
+------- Additional Comments From rharinath at novell.com  2006-02-20 02:33 -------
+I think these hashtables are protected by the general
+These may not cleanly be separable into separate images -- a generic
+instance in one assembly could be the instantiation of a generic
+definition in another.  Identical non-open instantiations from
+multiple assemblies should resolve to the same generic instance.
