[Mono-dev] Mono and explicit null checking (AIX platforms).

    Developers that have tried to port Mono to AIX have ran into the
problem that AIX keeps a valid page at address zero, which means that it
is not possible to properly generate the NullReferenceException.

    Mono on SVN currently contains a --debug option that can be used to
insert explicit null checks.   We could turn this into a general purpose
function if there is enough demand for it.

    To try it out in your AIX port, use:

	export MONO_DEBUG=explicit-null-checks
