When sending multiple requests, rte_mp_request_sync
can succeed sending a few of those requests, but then
fail on a later one and in the end return with rc=-1.
The upper layers - e.g. device hotplug - currently
handles this case as if no messages were sent and no
memory for response buffers was allocated, which is
not true. Fixed by always freeing memory buffers on
failure.

Fixes: 783b6e54971d ("eal: add synchronous multi-process communication")
