Subject: [PATCH] net: marvell: make the array name static, makes object smaller

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

Don't populate the const array name on the stack but instead it
static. Makes the object code smaller by 28 bytes. Add a missing
const to clean up a checkpatch warning.

Before:
   text    data   bss     dec     hex filename
 124565   31565   384  156514   26362 drivers/net/ethernet/marvell/sky2.o

After:
   text    data   bss     dec     hex filename
 124441   31661   384  156486   26346 drivers/net/ethernet/marvell/sky2.o

(gcc version 10.2.0)
