genalloc: add devres support, allow to find a managed pool by device
This patch adds three exported functions to lib/genalloc.c: devm_gen_pool_create, dev_get_gen_pool, and of_get_named_gen_pool. devm_gen_pool_create is a managed version of gen_pool_create that keeps track of the pool via devres and allows the management code to automatically destroy it after device removal. dev_get_gen_pool retrieves the gen_pool for a given device, if it was created with devm_gen_pool_create, using devres_find. of_get_named_gen_pool retrieves the gen_pool for a given device node and property name, where the property must contain a phandle pointing to a platform device node. The corresponding platform device is then fed into dev_get_gen_pool and the resulting gen_pool is returned.
