Issue 555: NSInvocation / NSMethodSignature

Reported by Nikolaus Schaller, Jan 16, 2014

has been heavily improved recently so that it runs many of the 
UnitTests without crashing.

Still crashing are:
* test15
* test16 (both have struct return and parameters)
* forward45 (forwarding within forwardInvocation: to a different 
selector)

The other tests give this result:

This means that there are still problems with
* test12: passing float/double
* test13: comparing selectors,and a/b
* test14: integers/chars
* test60/63: small differences in memory management

libffi may enlighten for the stack layout for VFP (armhf):
