[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Memory leak in debug support code

Hi Martin,

The attached patch fixes two memory leaks related to how
mono-debug.c::find_method works.

The patch moves mono_debug_free_method_jit_info from mini/debug-mini.c to
metadata/mono-debug.c and
add it to the public API.

The first memleak happens from ves_icall_System_Exception_get_trace which
leaks memory every time
source/line info is extracted from debug info. The second happens
debug-mini.c::mono_debug_print_vars when it
call mono_debug_find_method.

The issue is that find_method returns a new malloc'ed struct and no code
took care of free'ing that.

Please review. I think this fix is very important to get into 2.0 as, for
example, we leak 125k on 2.0 System test suite just
due to the get_trace leaks.
