  Add function for freeing a bulk of mbufs.

* Rename variables from "free" to "pending" for improved readability.
* Add prefix __ to rte_pktmbuf_free_seg_via_array().
* Add array size parameter to __rte_pktmbuf_free_seg_via_array().
  The compiler will optimize the parameter away anyway.
* Add description to __rte_pktmbuf_free_seg_via_array().
* Minor description updates.
* Mark as experimental by adding __rte_experimental.
* Add function to experimental section of map file.
* Fix source code formatting regarding pointer to pointer.
* Squash multiple modifications into one.
* Bugfix: Handle pakets with multiple segments.
* Add inline helper function, mainly for readability.
* Fix source code formatting regarding indentation.
* Function is not inline.
* Optimize 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.
* Fix a typo in the description headline: mempools is plural.
