No, that's what's actually wrong. tcpstates has to be static to honor the intent of the original author. If you want to do something extern then the actual tcpstates should go into tcp_debug.c. However, this is slightly less flexible in that the way it is now each source file can include this array simply by defining TCPSTATES (independent of TCPDEBUG as an option).
This is all incredible microopt goop. The only reason I didn't just simply make this an always visible thing is that it really dates to all intents and purposes from the end of the PDP-11 era where the inclusion of this array or not was really worth worrying about.
