Ok, this patch causes a deadlock in the profiler. I have to trace this

Miguel asked who this benefits. In short, anyone using WeakReference or
GCHandle. Gtk# uses weakreference right now, and there are some areas
where i want to add gchandle use. Any server application which called an
API which used GCHandle would eventually need to restart, because the
handle table would eat up the RAM.

Also, wrt licencing to make everything easy Miguel suggested i license
under the MIT.

The patch which was attached to my previous email "[PATCH] Reuse
GCHandle slots" (mono-gchandles.patch) is licensed under the X11/MIT
license, which can be found in /mcs/MIT.X11.
