You can't get location config from a cycle, as there are multiple 
locations and each has it's own config.  You may get module main 
config via ngx_http_cycle_get_module_main_conf().

Alternatively, depending on what you are trying to do, just a pool 
cleanup handler on configuration pool (with arbitrary opaque data 
passed) may be a better solution.
