# Steps to reproduce

1. Create a struct with a size above 4100 - [StructLayout(LayoutKind.Auto, Size = 4101)]   
2. Ensure iOS debugging is enabled (MtouchDebug=true)
2. Attempt to compile for a 32-bit iOS Device on ARMv7

# Expected behavior

Compiles successfully

# Actual behavior

Fails with "Could not AOT the assembly"

I managed to successfully reproduce this issue using the above repro steps and the following environment: https://gist.github.com/VincentDondain/a84e7b2cc058b8b890c98752809a57e0

This bug doesn't seem to be a regression as it does not work with (XI 10.8 / Mono 4.8) either: https://gist.github.com/VincentDondain/d99af3a7917c25825d3d52ce1a1e419f.

Note that this only affects 32 bit.

@Zoltan, can this be back ported to 2017-06?
Comment 7 Zoltan Varga 2017-06-21 18:30:46 UTC
The arm builds failed on wrench, so the fix might not be good.
