I was confused by the moved sram_reserve_regions() call, which was added
way later.

Allright, if it is assumed that gen_pool_get() interface requires only
a registered memory pool provider device, and it does, then there is
another kind of a problem, a SRAM/genpool consumer may not get access
to a valid region in SRAM before the latter is added to the SRAM pool
in sram_probe().

Instantly I don't know how to solve the issue above, it may require
a change to lib/genalloc.c to request a registration of genpool device
driver, but then such a change solves the problem identified by you
as well.

For your change as a proper (partial?) fix:
