in the parser in a few places the lock level depends on whether a query cache is compiled in, for example:

           /* empty */
              If it is SP we do not allow insert optimisation whan result of
               insert visible only after the table unlocking but everyone can
               read table.
             $$= (Lex->sphead ? TL_WRITE_DEFAULT : TL_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT);

The correct behavior is inside the ifdef - triggers (Lex->sphead != 0) should use TL_WRITE_DEFAULT that will be normal or low priority write lock depending on the top-level insert. There's a test case for that.

the behavior in the #else branch is wrong, the lock level in the trigger won't depend on the lock level of the top level insert.

How to repeat:
build without a query cache, run the test suite.

Suggested fix:
remove all #ifdef HAVE_QUERY_CACHE that affect lock levels from sql_yacc.yy

Fixed in 5.7.1.

Changes for test suite. No changelog entry needed.
