I'm not too happy with this patch because the hack is not restricted to
only those versions of OS X that actually need it. It's not needed, to
my knowledge, at least since 10.6; the latest version of that header
uses __inline rather than inline, which apparently all recent Apple
compilers support (and, AFAIK, gcc has supported since before OS X existed).

I'd suggest to wrap this in something like:

#ifdef __APPLE__
#include <Availability.h>

And of course use the correct value of MAC_OS_VERSION_10_something.
