With those (evil) macros you could do:

#define CALL_THISCALL0(name,this) __thiscall_#name(0,0,this)
#define CALL_THISCALL1(name,this,p1) __thiscall_#name(0,0,this,p1)

If you wanna use the same technique as used in MSVCRT you would do 
something like:

#define STDCALL(func) __stdcall_ ## func
#define STDCALL_NAME(func) __ASM_NAME("__stdcall_" #func)
     extern void STDCALL(func)(); \
     __ASM_GLOBAL_FUNC(__stdcall_ ## func, \
                       "popl %eax\n\t" \
                       "popl %ecx\n\t" \
                       "pushl %eax\n\t" \
                       "jmp " __ASM_NAME(#func) )

Now you can do:

void WINAPI foo(int a, int b);


int bar()

Thinking up better macro-names is left as an exercise for the reader. :)
