If I create the UISearchController like this it works:

> var searchController = new UISearchController((UIViewController) null);
> Console.WriteLine ("SearchController.SearchBar is: {0}", searchController.SearchBar == null ? "null" : "not null");
> SearchController.SearchBar is: not null

Nice! Make sure and put that in the release notes!

I have since reworked my code to just use UISearchBar and do the management myself. However, I'll test this work around in my code as well.
