[Mono-list] Overhead of internal calls

i'm thinking about embedding mono within my application. Therefore i wonder
what the overhead of internal calls is.

I know that internal calls don't do any marshalling, thus simply call a
native method, which was registered before. But are those calls compiled
directly as one ASM-call-instruction into the code by the JIT-Compiler? Or
does the JIT-Compiler generate a wrapper-method or something like that?
