Deletes a low-level semaphore. All threads waiting at the semaphore are awakened with the E_KN_NONEXIST status code.

Note: as with all low-level objects, the object itself is not deleted but waiting threads are signaled as described. Subsequently threads can again wait on the semaphore or send it units.

If a low-level region is deleted while a thread has access to it, that thread is no longer guarded by the low-level region. Any dynamic adjustments that were made to that thread's priority as a result of accessing the low-level region are nullified, the thread resumes its static priority, and may be preempted. Because the low-level region no longer exists, the thread must not release the low-level region's unit back to the region.

Note:   Do not use this call in an interrupt handler.
