[kaffe] Moving away from macros to inlined functions

this is a simple code hygene issue: I'd like to move away from using 
preprocessor macros all over kaffe's C sources, to use inline functions. 
Since the gdb debugger has a much better time with inlines, the gcc 
compiler produces more useful error and warning messages, inlines can be 
prototyped to check for type violations, and so on.

I'd like to start with BEGIN/END_EXCEPTION_HANDLING in jni.c and the 
sysdepCallMethod on arm, as that's what I'm trying to debug at the 
moment. Is everyone O.K. with the idea to move away from macros?
