+Product: Mono: Compilers
+Version: unspecified
+OS: All
+OS Details:

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: C# compiler should use unsigned arithmetic and should support overflow check on pointers
+The CheckPtr method in the attached source code is compiled to the 
+following using MS csc.exe that is exactly what I expect:
+  IL_0000:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0001:  ldarg.1
+  IL_0002:  add
+  IL_0003:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0004:  bge.un.s   IL_000c
+  IL_0006:  newobj     instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::.ctor()
+  IL_000b:  throw
+  IL_000c:  ldarg.0
+  IL_000d:  ldarg.1
+  IL_000e:  add
+  IL_000f:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0010:  bge.un.s   IL_0018
+  IL_0012:  newobj     instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::.ctor()
+  IL_0017:  throw
+  IL_0018:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0019:  ldarg.1
+  IL_001a:  add.ovf.un
+  IL_001b:  ldarg.0
+  IL_001c:  bge.un.s   IL_0024
+  IL_001e:  newobj     instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::.ctor()
+  IL_0023:  throw
+  IL_0024:  ret
+mcs on the other hand compiles the same code to the following:
+  IL_0000:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0001:  conv.i
+  IL_0002:  ldarg.1
+  IL_0003:  add
+  IL_0004:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0005:  bge        IL_0010
+  IL_000a:  newobj     instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::.ctor()
+  IL_000f:  throw
+  IL_0010:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0011:  conv.i
+  IL_0012:  ldarg.1
+  IL_0013:  add
+  IL_0014:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0015:  clt
+  IL_0017:  brfalse    IL_0022
+  IL_001c:  newobj     instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::.ctor()
+  IL_0021:  throw
+  IL_0022:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0023:  conv.i
+  IL_0024:  ldarg.1
+  IL_0025:  add
+  IL_0026:  ldarg.0
+  IL_0027:  clt
+  IL_0029:  brfalse    IL_0034
+  IL_002e:  newobj     instance void [mscorlib]System.Exception::.ctor()
+  IL_0033:  throw
+  IL_0034:  ret
+The result is that no exception is thrown.
+Some key bugs in the compiled IL code:
+- conv.i is unnecessary
+- bge.un should be used instead of bge
+- add.ovf.un should be used in checked context
+Some optimization bugs:
+- bge.un.s could be used instead of bge.un
+- when unchecked or checked is used clt and brfalse is used instead of bge
