Uh, no?  There is a reason

#define BLA(...) do { ... } while (0)

is an idiom.  Exactly in order _not_ to end with a semicolon when doing

if (...)
  BLA (xxx);
  blubb ();

Except when it's a clever way of getting rid of an unwanted semicolon.
Or in this case, create a semicolon hole, a negative semicolon count.
Add one semicolon, and none remains.
