New Revision: 113065

URL: http://svn.digium.com/view/asterisk?view=rev&rev=113065
This fix prevents a deadlock that was experienced in chan_local. There was
deadlock prevention in place in chan_local, but it would not work in a specific
case because the channel was recursively locked. By unlocking the channel prior
to calling the generator's generate callback in ast_read_generator_actions(), we
prevent the recursive locking, and therefore the deadlock.

(closes issue #12307)
