Actually, this should be 'locking' functions. If you look at the text:

ACQUIRING FUNCTIONS
-------------------

The Linux kernel has a number of locking constructs:

(*) spin locks
(*) R/W spin locks
(*) mutexes
(*) semaphores
(*) R/W semaphores

It's specifically talking about locking functions that the kernel provides -
or are we calling the spin acquires and R/W spin acquires now? "Locking" is
the key that people referring to the document are going to use.
