mono_assembly_load_with_partial_name ().

Anyway, you should *first* try to get official approval for
a new assembly from the core team, as new assemblies are
often rejected as undesirable

[To avoid a new assembly, you could lookup the attribute by
name from the image of the method. This requires that all
MonoInlineAttribute consumers are implementing this class
privately in their own assembly.]

It will break the MS.NET compatibility of assemblies that reference
this attribute. I guess you won't be very happy if Mono.SIMD
stops working on MS.NET (even if it's not optimized).
