The method gets inlined.
You can get the coverage info for it by running mono with inlining
disabled: mono -O=-inline program.exe.
I should likely change the coverage profiler to force inlining off
so the results are not surprising (it would be more work to
enable precise coverage info when inlining is enabled).
