Create a macro for the static modifier with VNET

Authored by andrew on Jul 5 2018, 6:48 PM.



As with DPCPU create a _STATIC version of VNET_DEFINE. This will allow us
to change this on arm64 later and enable VIMAGE.

I can add the same comment as DPCPU_DEFINE here

If you can sort out the pf_ioctl.c volatile issue first, and add the comment as you suggested this look good to me.

Or a comment simply saying "/* See dpcpu for explanation. */".

No, there is no struct _hack in the static macro. I'm not sure if the use of volatile is correct here, but haven't looked too deeply into it.

Hi, Andrew, do you plan to merge this into stable/11? It would be nice to have these macros to be able make MFC.
