From this desk case:

Customer reports that one of their users in the field hit a crash with the following exception reported via Insights: 
> Attempting to JIT compile method '(wrapper unknown) System.Net.NetworkInformation.MacOsStructs.sockaddr_in:PtrToStructure (intptr,object)' while running with --aot-only. See http://docs.xamarin.com/ios/about/limitations for more information.

---Code Snippet---
Customer reports the following segment is what tripped it:
> var nix = (from nic in NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces()
> where nic.Id.StartsWith("en") //wireless or lan for emulator
> || nic.Id.StartsWith("pdp_ip")
> select nic
> );

---Additional Info---
Pinged #iOS to ask for their opinion, they said to go ahead and file this issue; and to ask the customer if the issue happens regularly / predictably; and about their generic value type sharing settings. Asking the customer for more info on those.

I added the above code snippet into our test suite (maccore/master b53952a9b7e0c9c6f3d2fe8ede42f43282850fa0) maybe our bots will be able to duplicate it sometime (if it's random) but it worked fine for me.
