Sparse issues an "'object_array_slopbuf' not declared. Should it be
static?" warning. In order to suppress the warning, since this

static modifier to its declaration.

Hi Michael,

If you need to re-roll the patches in your 'mh/reflife' branch,
could you please squash this into the patch corresponding to
commit cbdeb23e ("object_array_entry: fix memory handling of
the name field", 25-05-2013).
