Looking at https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System/System.IO.Compression/GZipStream.cs#L58,
 the two constructors for GzipStream introduced in .NET 4.5 have still not been implemented. This forces ASP.NET vNext to special case mono when it used zipping apis and it also makes the ApiPort.exe tool from Microsoft crash.

The issue also exists with the DeflateStream class.
