That looks incorrect.  I don't see why 4.1 wouldn't allow the const static
data members initializers inside of the class.

You just need to define those vars, and the definition (without the
initializers) shouldn't go into the header, but to a single .c file instead
(I know right now there is just one .c file that includes this header, but
if we ever want to include it in more than one, it would be a problem;
if we never want to include in more than one, the question is why we have
the header file at all).

So IMHO keep tree-switch-conversion.h unmodified and add:

const unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT jump_table_cluster::max_ratio_for_size;
const unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT jump_table_cluster::max_ratio_for_speed;

to tree-switch-conversion.c somewhere.
