If you know that the unmanaged code won't hold a reference to the byte
array once the method has returned, then you can use `byte[]` as the
parameter type.  Otherwise, you'll need to copy the byte[] into
unmanaged memory (Marshal.AllocHGlobal() + Marshal.Copy() +
Marshal.FreeHGlobal() once you know the memory isn't being used
