  Add function for freeing a bulk of mbufs.

* Bugfix: Handle pakets with multiple segments.
* Added inline helper function, mainly for readability.
* Fix source code formatting regarding indentation.
* Function is not inline.
* Optimized to free multible mbufs belonging to the same mempool in
bulk. Inspired by ixgbe_tx_free_bufs(), but allowing NULL pointers
in the array, just like rte_pktmbuf_free() can take a NULL pointer.
* Use unsigned int instead of unsigned. Passes checkpatch, but
mismatches the original coding style of the modified files.
* Fixed a typo in the description headline: mempools is plural.
