> Please review this PR which adds the method `caseFoldLanguageTag(String languageTag)` to java.util.Locale.
> This method case folds a language tag to adhere to _[section 2.1.1. Formatting of Language Tags of RFC5646](https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc5646.html#section-2.1)_. This format is defined as _"All subtags, including extension and private use subtags, use lowercase letters with two exceptions: two-letter and four-letter subtags that neither appear at the start of the tag nor occur after singletons.  Such two-letter subtags are all uppercase ... and four-letter subtags are titlecase."_.
> In order to match the behavior of existing language tag related Locale methods, this method matches the 2.1.1 RFC5646 specification with the following **exceptions**:
> - Will not case fold variant subtags
> - Will not case fold private use subtags prefixed by "lvariant"
> As an example, `caseFoldLanguageTag("ja-kana-jp-x-lvariant-Oracle-JDK-Standard-Edition")` returns _"ja-Kana-JP-x-lvariant-Oracle-JDK-Standard-Edition"_. Further examples can be seen in the test file.
