Is the unconditional return here due to it being part of a recursive
call chain? I'm not sure what value the unconditional return of an enum
constant over the previous "void" gets us? Why return anything at all?
The previous version assumed the callers knew how to deal with the void
return, but I am not sure what your version achieves by unconditionally
returning macro_walk_continue?

Same as above. If you decide to keep them please update the comment
headers with a description of the return value.  This function,  and
numerous other places too.
