I guess we could give the attribute a named macro, e.g.,

static _Argument_type_is_not_arithmetic __tg_promote(...)

Here's what we get now when we try to take the sine of a pointer to  

tgmath_test.c:4:3: error: call to function '__tg_promote' that has  
been intentionally made unavailable
./tgmath.h:293:27: note: instantiated from:
#define sin(__x) __tg_sin(__tg_promote1((__x))(__x))
./tgmath.h:56:50: note: instantiated from:

In file included from tgmath_test.c:1:
