[Ironruby-core] "Native" Zlib Implementation Patch

A patch implementing Zlib decompression (with GZip decompression
support) as a built in library has been submitted to RubyForge:
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=19711&group_id=4359&atid=16800
.  It's quite a bit faster then trying to use Zliby (this is
essentially a port of that).  It works, though binary files seem to be
causing some problem, I suspect it's because of the differences in
Unicode Strings in the CLR vs non-Unicode strings in ruby 1.8.6.
Anyway, it's a start.
