Ah, I noticed there are 2 commits with the same commit message, though
513e1073d52e55b8024b4f238a48de7587c64ccf patch did not change the
__lock_downgrade(), which is really confusing. This patch
(513e1073d52e55b8024b4f238a48de7587c64ccf) did the right thing, and
71492580571467fb7177aade19c18ce7486267f5 patch should be applied to
__lock_downgrade.

I'll backport commit 71492580571467fb7177aade19c18ce7486267f5 too in
future. Thanks.
