           Summary: [PATH] Avoid making this_variable an IL variable
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: 1.2.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#

Currently, mcs declares a local variable for holding definitive assignment
information for valuetype ctors. Unfortunately, this variable is then made into
a (dead) IL variable, and our JIT is not very good at eliminating dead
variables, so we generate initialization code for this. The following mcs patch
avoids this. Tested by running a full bootstrap.
