Would be nice and help with the usage to define a singleton (cmp. the typical 
self() function). Because as K_GLOBAL_STATIC  is now a constructor must be 
made public, inviting API users to misuse that for hacks.

Or could there be another macro which creates the then not anonymous struct 
name used in the K_GLOBAL_STATIC macro, which then could be used to add 
a "friend struct X;" definition to the class which should be a singleton?
