#ifndef StaticConstructors_h
#define StaticConstructors_h
// We need to avoid having static constructors. This is accomplished by defining
// a static array of the appropriate size and alignment, and defining a const
// reference that points to the buffer. During initialization, the object will
// be constructed with placement new into the buffer. This works with MSVC, GCC,
// and Clang without producing dynamic initialization code even at -O0. The only
// downside is that all external translation units will have to emit one more
// load, while a real global could be referenced directly by absolute or
// relative addressing.
// Use an array of pointers instead of an array of char in case there is some alignment issue.
#define DEFINE_GLOBAL(type, name, ...) \
void* name##Storage[(sizeof(type) + sizeof(void *) - 1) / sizeof(void *)]; \
const type& name = *reinterpret_cast<type*>(&name##Storage);
