When registering a new event callback, if allocation fails,
there is no need for unregistering the callback,
because it is not registered.

Fixes: 9ec0b3869d8d ("ethdev: allow event registration for all ports")

Please pay attention to the case of port_id=RTE_ETH_ALL where the user wants to register the event for all the ports.

In this case, when a failure happens for one of the ports, this unregister call cleans the callback from all the ports.

Yes I missed it. Now I better understand the intent, thanks.

Next question: do we really want to rollback already registered ports?
Anyway, if we are out of memory, I think it is better not doing more operations.
There can be various opinions on this topic, please give yours.

Sure,
I understand that memory error is serious,
Do you think it is a fatal error? If so, maybe we should use rte_exit?

That way or others, I think the behavior should be a convention for all the file functions(at least).

I tend to do cleanup on any error.

We don't call rte_exit in the lib, so the app can do whatever it wants.

What do you mean "all the file functions"?

> I tend to do cleanup on any error.

I would like to hear opinions from others as well.

I also tend to do the cleanup, since API returns error I think application will
be right to think that no callback registered, partially registered callbacks on
error can be confusing.
