Return value must be checked here. It may return ENOTSUP and
EINVAL. If it fails, IMHO we should do cleanup and return NULL.

Please, fix notes from Thomas and above.

Overall these patches LGTM.

I think we should not introduce any flags that flow ops
are multi-process safe. Nobody prevents to call the API in
multi-process case and it must behave consistently.
The patch makes ethdev API safe and it is responsibility
of the driver care about final multi-process safety.
