Subject: [PATCH] spin_lock_*(): Always evaluate second argument

Evaluating a macro argument only if certain configuration options
have been selected is confusing and error-prone. Hence always
evaluate the second argument of spin_lock_nested() and

This patch has the intentional side effect that it avoids that the
following warning is reported for netif_addr_lock_nested() when
building with CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=n and with W=1:

include/linux/netdevice.h: In function 'netif_addr_lock_nested':
include/linux/netdevice.h:2865:6: warning: variable 'subclass' set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
  int subclass = SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING;
