Issues that this hotfix rollup fixes

Issue 1

When you run an application that handles heavy workloads that have a specific usage pattern for dynamic methods (for example, Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL), you may experience intermittent crashes in your application.

This issue occurs because of a problem in dynamic method lifetime management. When this issue occurs, System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException is thrown.

This fix corrects the lifetime management problem.

Issue 2

Both System.Web.Caching and System.Runtime.Caching report the size of memory that's used by the whole AppDomain instead of the size of memory that's used by the cache items. This is a regression from the .NET Framework 4.5 because of a change in the Timer implementation. In addition to reporting the incorrect size, the additional objects that are referenced by the cache may significantly affect gen2 GC latency. In ASP.NET hosting scenarios, the cache also miscalculates the size of all caches in all app domains (as reported through the Cache % Process Memory Limit Used ASP.NET performance counter) when app domains are recycled.

This fix removes unintended references from the cache to the other app domain objects so that the correct size is reported. This fix also includes changes to improve the latency for System.Runtime.Caching on multi-core computers that are using Server GC. Additionally, after this fix is applied, the size of all caches in app domain recycling scenarios is calculated correctly.
