AFAIK gcc only emits warning for non inline *functions*.

They are part of the protocol description. What looks weird is that the
numeric values are not defined in the protocol description however. But
in practice that's not a problem anyway.

So it seems ok to me to move them to xcb.h or some other header provided
by libxcb directly. I'll try to come up with a patch if no one is faster
than me.
