Summary: __cdecl shouldn't be selected by use of MS extensions

Initial Comment:
Expat 2.0.0

I find that in my builds _MSC_EXTENSIONS is not
defined, probably because I build with Microsoft
extensions switched off. The result of this is that
XMLCALL does not get defined to __cdecl, so when I try
to link to a __fastcall project I can't resolve the
symbols.

My workaround has been to change expat_external.h as
follows:

#if defined(XML_USE_MSC_EXTENSIONS)
#define XMLCALL __cdecl

becomes

#if defined(XML_USE_MSC_EXTENSIONS) || defined (_WIN32)
|| defined (_WIN64)
#define XMLCALL __cdecl

which is easy to apply and good enough for my purposes.

I am not a Windows expert, so there may be better ways,
e.g. a symbol that encompases both _WIN32 and _WIN64.
However, I think that you should be specifying the
Windows calling convention based on whether you are
building on Windows, not on whether you are building
with Microsoft extensions. XML_USE_MSC_EXTENSIONS is
used in other places in your code, but perhaps in these
other places it really is appropriate to make the
decision based on whether MS extensions are switched on
(again, I'm not a Windows expert so I'm not sure).

If you have no objections I'll commit the fix I described in
my last message.

Does it work for you to use
  #if defined(_MSC_VER) 
instead of
  #if defined(XML_USE_MSC_EXTENSIONS) ?

Looking at the other instances of
 #if defined(XML_USE_MSC_EXTENSIONS) 
I think they might be OK.
