--- Comment #3 from Don Lewis <truckman at FreeBSD.org> ---
The dummynet AQM patch accidentally abused this when it added two new files
that referenced an existing static variable one of the pre-existing source
files.  This was not caught because the authors only tested on amd64.

Why would the linker ignore the flag for local symbols?  That seems like it
could be the source of difficult to debug problems.
