I'm not sure that adding a macro that spans over ~150 lines is a good
idea. Unfortunately there is not so much options for a C language that
lacks generics.

Maybe it would be slightly better to write a shell script that would
generate these defintions into a separate header that would be included
in the tst_timer.h. That way we can run it manually to regenerate the
header if needed. At least we would get saner error message from
compiler that way.
