These were discovered when running internal policy checker
to try and get rid of potentially offensive language in DPDK.
After looking at a couple of these places, they were also
places where some improvement could be made.

There is no need to call rte_exit and crash the application here;
better to let the application handle the error itself.

Remove the gratuitous profanity which would be visible if
the rte_exit was still there.

Profanity aside, i think the message was trying to tell me something - 
namely, that if alarm_set fails, we're risking to leak this memory if 
reply from the peer never comes, and we're risking leaving the 
application hanging because the timeout never triggers. I'm not sure if 
leaving this "to the user" is the right choice, because there is no way 
for the user to free IPC-internal memory if it leaks.

So i think the proper way to handle this would've been to set the alarm 
first, then, if it fails, don't sent the message in the first place.

It makes the comment ends with a comma, like the end is missing.

What should be done here? OK to remove rte_panic for now?

As i said, the above fix is wrong because it leaks memory (however 
unlikely it may be).

The alarm set call should be moved to before we do send_msg() call (and 
goto fail; on failure). That way, even if alarm triggers too early (i.e. 
immediately), the requests tailq will still be locked until we complete 
our request sends - so we appropriately free memory on response, on 
timeout or in our failure handler if alarm set has failed.
