Mac Developer: GCC warning: __attribute__((always inline))

If you generate a store implementation with inlining checked and GCC complains about __attribute__((always_inline)), you can either change the generation options or remove the always inline attribute:

/* inline function prototype attributes macro */
#ifdef _DEBUG
#define APPTITE_INLINE_ATTR __attribute__((always_inline))
#define APPTITE_INLINE_ATTR __attribute__((always_inline)) __attribute__((nodebug))

Change the APPTITE_INLINE_ATTR preprocessor define to remove the ((always inline)) attribute:

/* removed always inline attribute */
#ifdef _DEBUG
#define APPTITE_INLINE_ATTR __attribute__((nodebug))
