I don't see how it would, as it doesn't (and can't legitimately)
include arch/x86/mm/mm-locks.h. Also maybe this comment in the
header clarifies it:

/* Page alloc lock (per-domain)
 * This is an external lock, not represented by an mm_lock_t. However,
 * pod code uses it in conjunction with the p2m lock, and expecting
 * the ordering which we enforce here.
 * The lock is not recursive. */
