Review Request: 6908267: Zero fails to unlock synchronized native methods on exception

Hi all,

If a synchronized native method throws an exception, Zero does not
unlock it.  This leaves the receiver/mirror locked, with a stale
monitor, which can cause the VM will crash at some unspecified time
in the future.  This webrev fixes it.
