OK, so it is now as follows:

#ifdef _MSC_VER
#include "windows.h"
#include "winbase.h" //For SecureZeroMemory
#define VC_GE_2005( version ) ( version >= 1400 )
#if defined __STDC_LIB_EXT1__
#define __STDC_WANT_LIB_EXT1__ 1

#if defined(__clang__)
#if __has_attribute(optnone)
#define NOT_OPTIMIZED __attribute__((optnone))
#elif defined(__GNUC__)
#define GCC_VERSION (__GNUC__ * 10000 \
                    + __GNUC_MINOR__ * 100 \
                    + __GNUC_PATCHLEVEL__)
#if GCC_VERSION >= 40400
 #define NOT_OPTIMIZED __attribute__((optimize("O0")))

static inline void NOT_OPTIMIZED secure_wipe_memory( void *v, size_t n )
#if defined  (_MSC_VER ) &&  VC_GE_2005( _MSC_VER )
#elif defined memset_s
    memset_s(v, n);
#elif defined( __OpenBSD__ )
explicit_bzero( memory, size );
static void* (*const volatile memset_sec)(void*, int, size_t) = &memset;
