I'd rather not wait three (or five!) more years to install helpful
changes like this.  I might not live that long.

If it's unacceptable to maintain both a macro and a function
implementation for a few primitives, we can simply have the
latter invoke the former -- that way, there's only one actual
implementation.  Or if you prefer, we can omit the functions
entirely.  We can leave in a FIXME reminding us to
change the macros to functions after the three years or so.

Another option is that you could download and install
GCC 4.8.x on your Debian stable host.  That should
work.  That might be better for Emacs development,
though it'd be a bit more of an effort for you.
