Subject: [PATCH v3] spin_lock_nested(): 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().

An intentional side effect of this patch is 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;
      ^
