metadata/class.h is a public API header: any function exported there
must obey the naming rules, in particular avoiding the pollution of the
user namespace. All the public mono functions must have a "mono_" prefix.
Also, in the spirit of C-based OOP code the functions that can be
considered instance methods for a type should have a prefix that
matches the type name (but lowercase and with underscores inserted
in lowercase->uppercase transitions). In this case the function names
should be:


With this change the patch can be committed.
