We can do something like that, but I don't think it would end up being better.

At the end of the day, because the trace stuff cannot be in the
header, we have to add an extra function call one way or the other.
This would just move the call one step further down the call stack.
So, I don't think it would affect performance in the
CONFIG_MMAP_LOCK_STATS + tracepoints not enabled at runtime case.

Also the wrappers aren't quite so simple as this, they need some
parameters to work. (the struct mm_struct, whether it was a read or a
write lock, and whether or not the lock operation succeeded), so it
would mean adding more inlined code, which I think adds up to be a
nontrivial amount since these wrappers are called so often in the
kernel.

If you feel strongly, let me know and I can send a version as you
describe and we can compare the two.
