Sorry, I'm not understanding what you are trying to say on that one.

The hwspinlock stubs are present if HWSPINLOCK is not enabled (when
<linux/hwspinlock.h> is #included).

The following kconfig combinations build:

n y
n m
y y
y m
m m
but this combo is not allowed (with the patch) or causes build errors
(without the patch):
m y
