You means to use gen_pool_alloc_data()?
Previously you said that the format of data is algorithm-specific,
So I think it is better to handle data in algorithm function.

If you still prefer gen_pool_alloc_data(), I will modify it.
But there still are details I want to confirm with you.
1. If use gen_pool_alloc_data(), should I pass data as a parameter?
2. Should I count align_mask in gen_pool_alloc_data(), meanwhile, add 
   a align_mask to data as a member?
3. where to define the data, in genalloc.h or caller layer?
