mm: fix RODATA_TEST failure "rodata_test: test data was not read only"

On powerpc, RODATA_TEST fails with message the following messages:

  Freeing unused kernel memory: 528K
  rodata_test: test data was not read only

This is because GCC allocates it to .data section:

  c0695034 g     O .data	00000004 rodata_test_data

Since commit 056b9d8a ("mm: remove rodata_test_data export, add
pr_fmt"), rodata_test_data is used only inside rodata_test.c By
declaring it static, it gets properly allocated into .rodata section
instead of .data:

  c04df710 l     O .rodata	00000004 rodata_test_data

Fixes: 056b9d8a ("mm: remove rodata_test_data export, add pr_fmt")
