[Mono-dev] SerialPort - GetPortNames patch

Attached is a patch to implement GetPortNames for windows by looking in the 
registry. Can someone test it out and commit it for me if it is acceptable.
I have tested it on XP and Vista, but if anyone can check the registry 
location is also valid for 2000 that would be useful.

I am working on a project that uses serial ports quite extensively and it 
would be useful if mono supported the full functionality with buffering and 
events. I should have some time to work on this myself so if whoever knows 
this class best can give me some idea of why it isn't already done and what 
approaches were considered. I can spend some time looking at it.


P.S. This is the first patch I have submitted so if I need to do anything 
differently please let me know. I made it with TortoiseSVN but I assume it 
shouldn't be any different than svn.
