All local variable declarations must be in the beginning of the

Your comment about not overriding error code is incorrect.

The value of 'rc' should be never overridden, which kind of supports
to "just print" behavior that we had for a locality error.

Is your fix somehow dependent on changing relinquish_locality()
behavior? If not, please remove this change. If you want to contribute
such behavioral change, you should make a separate patch of it.

Now it's like a trojan horse bundled inside a bug fix.
