Yeah, I inadvertently broke it with commit
f6bb2a2c0b81 ("xarray: add the xa_lock to the radix_tree_root")

Andrew has a patch to fix it in his tree. All you need is:

+++ b/tools/include/linux/spinlock.h
@@ -8,6 +8,7 @@
#define spinlock_t pthread_mutex_t
+#define spin_lock_init(x) pthread_mutex_init(x, NULL);

#define spin_lock_irqsave(x, f) (void)f, pthread_mutex_lock(x)
#define spin_unlock_irqrestore(x, f) (void)f, pthread_mutex_unlock(x)
