Right, these macros were in the original module (by Vladimir Marangozov).  They've never done anything - never been tested.  Over the years I removed other layers of macro indirection (while other people added more ;-) ), but left these alone because they point out at least some speed-crucial places where "removing the GIL" would add new costs.

That said, I wouldn't object if you removed all the lock-related macros in obmalloc.  The code is hairier now than it was at the start, so throwing out unused cruft is also more valuable now than it was at the start.
