[2.2] [HttpKernel] LocaleListener overrides request's locale #7474

When using lunetics/LocaleBundle the request's locale can be set form different sources, not just the _locale parameter. But depending on the order of execution of the LocaleListener's, this is overridden by HttpKernel's LocaleListener. There are serveral fixes available for lunetics/LocaleBundle (see lunetics/LocaleBundle#62 or lunetics/LocaleBundle#59) but both actually depend on Symfony's implementation details.

Shouldn't the LocaleListener check the request's locale before setting/overriding it or should one of the solutions for lunetics/LocaleBundle be the solution?

Any help/comment welcome!

@fabpot could that bugfix also please cherrypicked to symfony 2.1? I would rather just keep at using $request->setLocale() in my LocaleBundles Eventlistener instead of manually using $request->attributes->set('_locale', $locale);
