[Mono-list] Xamarin Bug #10857 - System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlDecimal on ARM

Bug referred to is  HERE.
<https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=10857>   This pretty well is a
show stopper for doing anything with a DB on the ARM, since many of the
higher level SQL classes refer to this whether it's actually going to be
used or not. (My own DB could care less about 'Decimal')

Since the ARM (BeagleBone in my case) is so much less mainstream than x86, I
don't expect this to get immediate attention from the regular mono

So I'm wondering a couple of things:

Is anyone on this list familiar with both this part of the mono code
(SqlDataTypes), and working with ARM?

Has anyone else encountered this particular bug and consider is it important
to you?

Any clues as to what the issue might be? (I thought endianess, but x86 and
ARM are both little endian..?)

If I try to correct this myself, is there any sort of test frame already
available that I might use to try to test / exercise this as an individual
class (SqlDecimal.cs) rather than rebuilding all of mono? (Or some subset of
mono, at least.)

I have no way to use anything but a terminal window on my BeagleBone, so
will may want to set up an ARM virtual machine for initial tests. Anyone
done this and have suggestions?

Thanks all
