>From ECMA 335, Partition II, Section 22.20 (GenericParam), in the metadata
validity section, we have:

  4. Every generic method shall own one row in the GenericParam table for each
     its generic parameters [ERROR]

So, there is probably a metadata validity violation, which is up to VMWare to

I see two options for the runtime to handle such assemblies

  a. throw a BadImageFormat or a TypeLoad exception

  b. forge on, by conning up some fake generic param entries
     - assume no variance, and no constraints
     - use the parameter number as the name

Option b seems to be what .NET chooses.
