Namespace:  System.Runtime.CompilerServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static class IsJitIntrinsic

Compilers emit custom modifiers within metadata to change the way that the just-in-time (JIT) compiler handles values when the default behavior is not appropriate. When the JIT compiler encounters a custom modifier, it handles the value in the way that the modifier specifies. Compilers can apply custom modifiers to methods, parameters, and return values. The JIT compiler must respond to required modifiers but can ignore optional modifiers.

You can emit custom modifiers into metadata using one of the following techniques:

System.Object
  System.Runtime.CompilerServices.IsJitIntrinsic
