rump tries to split the kernel into components so that programs that just need a
particular subsystem from the kernel don't need to link against the whole kernel.
Unfortunately the kernel was not designed with such a split in mind, so that variables
are shared between components. The hacky way to make this work is to define them
in both components. A better way is to put them in a third component and have the other
two require it, but that introduces overhead.
