Hi all,

Running the following in Emacs 24 and 25-rc pops a buffer displaying "bd". On 
master, it displays "b" and "d" on top of each other.

    (with-current-buffer (get-buffer-create "*test*")
      (insert "test")
      (compose-region (point-min) (point-max) '(?b (Br . Bl) ?d))
      (pop-to-buffer (current-buffer)))

Bisecting points to the following commit:

    237244bbd5ce753bcdf79634561de515bd76c687 is the first bad commit

        Omit IF_LINT code that no longer seems needed

        Nowadays GCC is smarter, or the Emacs code has mutated, or both,
        and now is as good a time as any to remove uses of IF_LINT that
        now seem to be unnecessary.

The small test case is courtesy of Artur; we both noticed the issue while using 
his (awesome) ‘nameless’ package; see 
https://github.com/Malabarba/Nameless/issues/15 for details on the issue that 
prompted the investigation.
