Ruby 1.9.2-p318 faster

Due to an applied patch that optimized/fixed how ruby required libraries, the performance of my test suite was significant (~2 times.)

Below are the benchmarks from my test suite before and after the upgrade. The only issue was that RVM did not have support for the latest patch version so one pull request later and we are good to go.

    Ruby 1.9.2-p290

        real    6m14.266s
        user    2m17.930s
        sys 0m9.587s

    UPGRADE TO ruby p318

        real    2m22.649s
        user    1m15.867s
        sys 0m8.126s

My continuous integration server will be really happy now as well!
