[Mono-devel-list] [PATCH] make --debug symfiles use mmap

Hey guys,

I noticed that --debug loads the symfile using g_file_get_contents. This
means that memory for the entire file is malloc'd and the entire file
has to be read from the disk.

This patch uses mono_raw_buffer_* so that we can mmap the file, like we
do with IL images.

This saves quite a bit of ram (think: the size of the .mdb file for
every loaded assembly).
