[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Optimize Encoding.GetByteCount

Hey guys,

On the 2.0 profile, Encoding uses the char*/byte* version of encoding
methods to avoid allocating memory. One code path missed this
optimization, I've attached a fix.

This code path ends up being used in Banshee quite a bit on their tree
view (basically, every time the model is queried, this method gets called
in passing String objects to char*).

A few things to think about:

- It might pay to do something on the 1.0 profile as well.
- Paolo, can you comment on how this kind of change works with the moving gc?
