Yes, if a static field is defined in class A, you need to use the vtable
of class A to access it. To get the class that defines a field, use the
parent member of the MonoClassField structure.
I have fixed the code in metadata/icall.c: do you have a test case where
you get a MonoReflectionField object for a static field with klass
being a derived class?
