[Mono-dev] Patch for io-layer/collection.c

Android's build uses the GNU C compiler, but is failing while compiling "gpointer collection_thread (gpointer unused G_GNUC_UNUSED)" because it exits via a pthread_exit, and not via the return statement:

static gpointer collection_thread (gpointer unused G_GNUC_UNUSED)
    struct timespec sleepytime;

    sleepytime.tv_nsec = 0;

    while (_wapi_has_shut_down == FALSE) {
        nanosleep (&sleepytime, NULL);

        //_wapi_handle_dump ();
        _wapi_handle_update_refs ();

        /* This is an abuse of the collection thread, but it's
         * better than creating a new thread just for one more
         * function.
        _wapi_process_reap ();

    pthread_exit (NULL);

#if !defined(__GNUC__)
    /* Even though we tell gcc that this function doesn't return,
     * other compilers won't see that.

I've attached a patch that fixes the Android build by adding another condition to the #if.
