Simple (yet glib) answer: Don't allocate anything from the GC.  If you
don't allocate GC memory, then the GC won't get involved.  :-)

Sadly, this is the safest solution.  If you disable the GC and the GC
heap runs out of space, what should happen?  An OutOfMemoryException is
probably the only viable choice, which would likely be worse for you
than just having the GC intervene.
