Given those two choices :

#if defined(CONFIG_SMP) || defined(CONFIG_PROVE__LOCKING)
     kmalloc(sizeof(rwlock_t) * size);
#endif

and

    if (sizeof(rwlock_t) != 0) {
        kmalloc(sizeof(rwlock_t) * size);
    }

I prefer the 2nd one. Less error prone, and no need to remember how are 
spelled the gazillions CONFIG_something we have.
