    Related forum thread:

    Also missing: pinning spans. So this also doesn't work

    private static unsafe void SpanInFixedContext(ReadOnlySpan<byte> s) {
    fixed (byte* dest = s) {
    //do something

    Previously, we would be able to add System.Memory.dll manually, but doing so now will cause conflicts since mscorlib already includes it (even if partially).
