[Ironruby-core] Will the performance catch up be next milestone?

This benchmark was done against mono 2.4.4 which is significantly old. I
guess 2.6 shouldn't bring much performance
improvements but the upcoming 2.8 release with the new GC can make huge
differences specially on GC bound
benchmarks such as binary_trees.
