Of course, you can always use some sort of #ifdef to make it work with the
older compilier while taking advantage of the inlining with the newer

On the other hand, changing a macro with alloca in it to an inline
function is probably not what you want.  It seems to me like the whether
the alloca'd memory would be deallocated when the inline function returns
is a quite ambigous case, and almost certainly buggy when the optimization
flags aren't set to enable inlining.
