lib/genalloc.c: remove unmatched write_lock() in gen_pool_destroy
There is a call to write_lock() in gen_pool_destroy which is not balanced by any corresponding write_unlock(). This causes problems with preemption because the preemption-disable counter is incremented in the write_lock() call, but never decremented by any call to write_unlock(). This bug is gen_pool_destroy, and one of them is non-x86 arch-specific code.
