Thank you for sharing this. I'd just recommend to write macro #define's
in such a way that they are syntactically and semantically neutral ...
using do { .... macro contents ... } while (false) is a good way to
achieve this. For instance, this:

#define logInfo(methodname, message) do { \
   BOOST_LOG_SEV(_log, boost::log::trivial::severity_level::trace) <<
message \
while (false)

would allow constructs such as:

if (something)
   logInfo("my_func", "my message");

which not only would not fail with compilation errors but would behave
really strange with your original code.

I never used any of my accounts on stackoverflow and can't write a
comment there, hence I'm (ab)using an opportunity to comment here.

Just a footnote: isn't methodname rather redundant since you already
have __func__ in the LOG_LOCATION?
