IMHO there is too much preprocessor directives scattered over the code. 
Perhaps in this case noreturn macros could be used in front of the 
mentioned functions? Its definition could be as follows:

#if __STDC_VERSION__ >= 201112L
     #include <stdnoreturn.h>
#elif __GNUC__
     #define noreturn __attribute__ ((noreturn))
#elif _MSC_VER
     #define noreturn __declspec(noreturn)
     #define noreturn
