[Mono-dev] Full AOT compilation of generics supported?

  full aot + generics is mostly supported, but it is very hard to
statically determine the
set of generics methods which need to be AOTed so it might not work in
all cases. Try
current SVN HEAD as there were fixes in this area in the past two weeks.
