Because GetObject is a WINELIB_NAME_AW #define, and these cause a
(deliberate) syntax error when building Wine.

That's simply an optimization; maybe we could use an inline function

The idea is that you can then use the NONAMELESS defines to write more
portable code, without having to duplicate the compiler checks. So the
user's code can do something like:

#include <winnt.h>
#define U(x) u.x
#define U(x) x
