From: Yunjian Wang <wangyunjian@huawei.com>

When the memory for uevent.devname is allocated in dev_uev_parse(). It
is not freed when parse the subsystem layer fails in dev_uev_parse().
And Before return, it is also not freed in dev_uev_handler(). These
cause a memory leak.

Fixes: 0d0f478d0483 ("eal/linux: add uevent parse and process")
