[Mono-dev] [Patch] gmcs considers bla<T> and bla{T} as illegal in a cref

gmcs gives warning CS1584 if you have an XML comment referencing a 
generic type like cref="Bla<T>" or cref="Bla{T}". Those two variants 
work with Microsoft's csc. The only variant that makes gmcs happy is 
cref="T:Bla`1" which gives a warning with Microsoft's csc (it used to be 
the way to do it with older versions of csc).

Would someone please review and commit my patch attached to bug #480862 
(<https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=480862>) which treats 
Bla<T> and Bla{T} as being equal to T:Bla`1 in a cref.
