The difference is that spin_is_locked() will return true when someone else holds
the lock, while lockdep_assert_held() asserts that the current thread holds the
lock. How about the following for an new changelog?

lockdep_assert_held() is better suited to checking locking requirements,
since it only checks if the current thread holds the lock regardless of
whether someone else does. This is also a step towards possibly removing
spin_is_locked().
