Sure. I can remove this for SPARC. Will make this as a separate patch.
But, there are still some architectures use this gaurd.

arch/xtensa/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/arm/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/powerpc/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/metag/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/hexagon/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/alpha/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/sh/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/mn10300/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/ia64/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/blackfin/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/m32r/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/s390/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
!defined(__LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H) && !defined(__ASM_SPINLOCK_H)
arch/tile/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H
arch/mips/include/asm/spinlock_types.h:#ifndef __LINUX_SPINLOCK_TYPES_H

I think we need still need this patch as it re-arrages headers
properly. Will send v2 series soon.
