They're slightly different: __forceinline works just like the normal
inline specifier, while __attribute__((always_inline)) can be placed in
various places like other GCC attributes, but only has an effect if the
function is also inline.

So basically it should be something along the lines of

#if defined __GNUC__
#define BOOST_FORCE_INLINE __attribute__((always_inline)) inline
#elif defined BOOST_MSVC
#define BOOST_FORCE_INLINE __forceinline
#define BOOST_FORCE_INLINE inline
