Looks like a bug in checkpatch.pl:

# check for spinlock_t definitions without a comment.
if ($line =~ /^.\s*(struct\s+mutex|spinlock_t)\s+\S+;/ ||
    $line =~ /^.\s*(DEFINE_MUTEX)\s*\(/) {
        my $which = $1;
        if (!ctx_has_comment($first_line, $linenr)) {
                CHK("UNCOMMENTED_DEFINITION",
                    "$1 definition without comment\n" . $herecurr);
        }
}

Since your mutex definition has the 'static' keyword in front of it
checkpatch.pl misses it!

Andy: Is this checkpatch.pl behavior intentional?
