There is no need to add explicit support for oprofile on mono. It works out
of the box
for everything. The only issue is that it reports results for JIT'd code as
a single code blob.
And this issue doesn't get solved by using the opagent support.

Anyway, finishing opagent support would be nice since they will eventually
fix it.
