Great. That means all the bugs still there are non-obvious, and will
take a long time to find. Just make my day, will you. (Thanks.)

I agree completely. But it is not the standard practice (see target.h
and elsewhere) and others don't seem to mind. So I reined in my prima
donna urges and left them as macros.
And besides, function calls are so slow. Remember, GDB's performance
matters a lot --- it's used to debug real-time operating systems!

If I get a bandstand I'll play the boogie 'til the sun goes down.
