The want was to have some separate object section for netlink messages
so all netlink messages could be specifically listed by some tool but
the effect is duplicating static const char arrays in the object code.

It seems unused presently so change the macro to avoid the local static
declarations until such time as these actually are wanted and used.

This reduces object size ~8KB in an x86-64 defconfig without modules.

$ size vmlinux.o*
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
20110471	3460344	 741760	24312575	172faff	vmlinux.o.new
20119444	3460344	 741760	24321548	1731e0c	vmlinux.o.old
