Sign Assembly with a Strong Name

See original GitHub issue

Recently BenchmarkDotNet took dependency on Capstone.NET. We are very happy, as it has allowed us to very quickly implement a solid arm64 disassembler. But there is one problem… BenchmarkDotNet is a strong-name assembly ( and because of that, when we try to use the disassembler on .NET Framework we get an exception:

Could not load file or assembly 'Gee.External.Capstone, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. A strongly-named assembly is required. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131044)

It’s not a problem with .NET Core, because this concept has been removed in Core.

@9ee1 is there any chance you could add strong name signing to Capstone.NET? I know it’s a relic of the past, but we (BenchmarkDotNet) still support .NET Framework and it would be great to have the arm disassembler on it too.
