I looked around and didn't immedialy see a point where it'd be useful. I
don't really want to put it in some place where it's not useful. I think
we can just as well wait for the first patch using it to exercise
restrict support.

There's references to restrict support back to VS 2008:

So I'll change the pg_config.h.win32 hunk to:
/* Define to the equivalent of the C99 'restrict' keyword, or to
   nothing if this is not supported.  Do not define if restrict is
   supported directly.  */
/* Visual Studio 2008 and upwards */
#if (_MSC_VER >= 1500)
/* works for C and C++ in msvc */
#define restrict __restrict
#define restrict

there's several patterns like that (except for the version mapping) in
the file already.
