AFAIK, the define body is composed of 2 seperate C 
statements which should be seperated by semicolon. A comma 
does not seperate C statements; a semicolon seperates C 
statements. (Sometimes in English too. ;-))

It's not a matter of whether a comma is allowed in macro, 
as so much whether the macro is defined to be legal C.
