Um, no.

It used to be that without POOL_DIAGNOSTIC you directly called
pool_get, pool_put, and pool_reclaim.  With POOL_DIAGNOSTIC, macros
were added that sent in __FILE__ and __LINE__ as separate parameters
to the functions (now with an underscore in front).  My patch made
that always be the case.  If POOL_DIAGNOSTIC is not defined, these
just get ignored.  This will keep the API the same, and hide the fact
that diagnostic checks are (or not) performed.
