We're experiencing a SIGSEGV when the native library of our application attempts to call into the managed code of our application via a callback. This issue started to occur only after updating Xamarin.iOS 126.96.36.199 to 10.x, and occurs only on 32-bit platforms (iPhone 4s/5). The contents of the application output are:

Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates
a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries
used by your application.
Could you please attach a test project we can use to reproduce this?

A sample project demonstrating the issue.
The issue occurs when the callback methods are in a referenced PCL. A workaround is to move the callbacks into the Xamarin.iOS project.

Smaller test project
I can reproduce the crash with the supplied test project (with xamarin-macios/master), and I can confirm it only happens on ARMv7 (ARM64 works fine).
Initially targeting C9 since this is a regression.
This happens when a call is made back to native code on a thread not registered with the runtime. The auto registration code has a bug where it depends on the thread already registered, causing this crash.
Hopefully going to get fixed by:
Fixed in mono master 0eda1938a4e38fcb18bee96df60cd8734cec497b.
I can also reproduce this Issue with XI 10.2.1.5 using project mentioned in comment#3. This is the Application output for the same: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/4b2b0a369b3c0e25f6a2bbf522c86f96

I have checked this with Cycle 9 (XI 10.4.0.20) and Master XI 10.5.0.6), I am not seeing any SIGSEGV in attached project. This is the application output for the same: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/568864e7b27d0cbf3f82995a4e73c079

We also ran into this issue on 32 bit iOS devices when calling managed code from native. Thanks for fixing this one, Xamarin.
