When creating process data structures, EAL will create many files
in EAL runtime directory. Because we allow multiple secondary
processes to run, each secondary process gets their own unique
file. With many secondary processes running and exiting on the
system, runtime directory will, over time, create enormous amounts
of sockets, fbarray files and other stuff that just sits there
unused because the process that allocated it has died a long time
ago. This may lead to exhaustion of disk (or RAM) space in the
runtime directory.

Fix this by removing every unlocked file at initialization that
matches either socket or fbarray naming convention. We cannot be
sure of any other files, so we'll leave them alone. Also, remove
similar code from mp socket code.

We do it at the end of init, rather than at the beginning, because
secondary process will use primary process' data structures even
if the primary itself has died, and we don't want to remove those
before we lock them.
