I can't say I love this.  Have you considered:

#ifdef CONFIG_SPF
#define vma_rb_write_lock(mm)	write_lock(&mm->mm_rb_lock)
#define vma_rb_write_unlock(mm)	write_unlock(&mm->mm_rb_lock)
#else
#define vma_rb_write_lock(mm)	do { } while (0)
#define vma_rb_write_unlock(mm)	do { } while (0)
#endif

Also, SPF is kind of uninformative.  CONFIG_MM_SPF might be better?
Or perhaps even CONFIG_SPECULATIVE_PAGE_FAULT, just to make it really
painful to do these one-liner ifdefs that make the code so hard to read.
