[Mono-dev] [PATCH] String.cs

Yes, I have performed some benchmark testing. Attached is a copy of the
benchmark program. It's runs most of the existing test cases for the Split
method in a loop a million times.

The results between the managed and unmanaged versions are statistically the
same. The unmanaged version seems to be slightly faster by 1.4%. The
unmanaged version was never faster than the managed version in all the
benchmark runs.

I only have an ESXi virtual environment (running only two guests) to run the
benchmark so my sampling error is higher than if tested on a dedicated
machine. I would appreciate some independent verification, if necessary.
