Apparently, there are 2 such patches in the upstream kernel - commit
513e1073d52e55b8024b4f238a48de7587c64ccf and
71492580571467fb7177aade19c18ce7486267f5. These are probably caused by
the fact that there are 2 places in the code that can match the hunks.
Anyway, this looks like it is applying to the wrong function. It should
be applied to __lock_downgrade. Though it shouldn't harm if it is
applied to the wrong function.

Cheers,
Longman
