From: Jianfeng Tan <jianfeng.tan@intel.com>

IPC is used by memory subsystem, and when we merge IPC threads with
interrupt threads, asynchronous IPC requests will have to use alarm
API. However, currently, alarm API uses rte_malloc to allocate memory,
which will create a circular dependency between alarm API and memory
subsystem.

To avoid such chicken and egg dilemma, we change to use glibc malloc
in the alarm API.
