to avoid memory copy.

I just found in OSMemory.c, get/setByteArray do some unnecessary memory copies 
between Java and native.

In getByteArray, GetByteArrayElements copy data from java to native, and then 
ReleaseByteArrayElements do the reverse, I think using SetByteArrayRegion is enough.

In setByteArray, I found JNI calls 
GetPrimitiveArrayCritical/ReleasePrimitiveArrayCritical could get a pointer to 
the primitive array without any copy, but seems they has some side effects (on 
GC?), I don't have much confidence that they can apply here. I hope some one can 
give some advices about this patch. Thanks.

Best Regards,
