You can write the trivial C code that uses gettimeofday(), compile it to
a shared library and either name it libkernel32.so or another name of
your choice and then add a dllmap entry to redirect calls for
QueryPerformanceFrequency (and likely QueryPerformanceCounter) to the
new shared library (see the mono manpage for details).
