Also interested in this topic, I'll offer the logical/theory point of view;

With a static field, the offset into the mbuf can be encoded in the instruction
stream, meaning there are no d-cache loads to identify particular dynamic field.

With a static/global variable, the cache line where the value resides is presumably
not hot in cache per burst (assuming an application that does significant work, so not
in cache since last burst). Hence overhead estimate could be 1x cache line load per burst.

With the data copied into the node, the offset is presumably on a hot cache line as the
node is using other data-members of its context. As a result, perhaps a cold static cache
line load is converted to a hot node-context line re-use. 

Real world overhead likely depends on A) does the application cache-trash enough to make
the static/global line fall out of cache - causing perf degradation due to reload, and B) does
the node->ctx still fit in the same number of lines as before if the value is copied there.
