Currently, when rte_service_init() fails at initialization, we
see the following message:

  Cannot init EAL: Exec format error

This error code does describe the real issue. Instead, use the error
code returned by the function.

Fixes: e39824500825 ("service: initialize with EAL")

Should the above read as "does NOT describe" .. ?

Few comments below, assuming agree on those, add my Ack on v2?

Checked, -ENOMEM and -EALREADY are returned today, which seem
better descriptive terms. Thanks for fixing,

Here we set   rte_errno   as   -ret,  as in rte_service_init() we return the negative, e.g.   -ENOMEM.
Perhaps it is cleaner to to return ENOMEM from rte_service_init(), and avoid the duplicate negation?

rte_service_init() is not exported publicly in the .map file, so is internal only, and hence not an ABI break.

I think returning -errno is common in dpdk, so I'll keep it like
this. Or it can eventually return -1 and set rte_errno.
