Well, the idea was just to have one single macro saying "do whatever it takes
so that this is available as a constant for assembler code in this file".
To me such a static_used define feels like naming things after a gcc-specific
hack instead of what is really teh intention.
But I'm not objecting if anyone has strong feelings about this...
