The verification is done is verify_*.c files in the
engine directory. The main file being verify.c

And the method which actually starts (or does) the
verification (with interleaved calls to the coder)
is _ILVerify (line 612).
The verification happens in 3 passes over the CIL
 In the first pass, the jump targets are identified.

 In the second pass, all the jump targets which are
 determined in the first pass are verified, whether
 they are the instruction starts.

 The third pass looks at each and every instruction
 and does the required corresponding verification as  
 per the ECMA specifications (For example, in
 verify_arith.c you could see a type inference table,
 which is exactly "similar" to what is given in the
 specifications). This is a huge switch case loop,
 which is split across the verify_* files. (you might
 want to look at mail which I ent sometime back of
 how to split a switc-case loop across files).

Please correct me if I have got something wrong
