Note that libreplace will define __FUNCTION__ as __func__ if only the
latter is available. If neither macro is available, it will define
__FUNCTION__ as an empty string. You should be able to use
__FUNCTION__ without it causing compilation errors.

That said, I don't think there are any platforms that we support
(which already need to support some parts of C99) that don't support
