[Xen-devel] [PATCH] x86/HAP: avoid using bogus/misleading locking

hap_teardown() unconditionally releases the paging lock and is always
being called without the lock held: Lock acquire should then be
unconditional too.

Signed-off-by: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@xxxxxxxx>
While this is only a cosmetic change afaict I would still like to
explore whether to include this in 4.9.
