Do you mean the MonoThreadsSync *synchronisation field in MonoObject?

I'm open to suggestions on how to improve that, but it has to be
accessible from the MonoObject * without having to scan a list held
somewhere else, or theres no point optimising the monitor locks :)

I suppose having the blocks referenced in a list somewhere else, and
telling the gc to ignore the pointer in the MonoObject would work.
