I still don't understand why it doesn't work.

It was introduced because using macros it not always acceptable.
Some source uses these functions in ways that break if they are
defined as macros.

Defining them as inline functions work, but we can't do so for
varargs, in which case we used aliases.

What was the reason to break them, and why they don't work?
They are aliasing to things that _are_ defined, so I'm not
sure what is going on there.
