When using huge_unlink we unlink the segment right
after allocation. Although we unlink the file we keep
the fd in fd_list so file still exist just the path deleted.
When freeing the hugepage we need to close the fd and assign
it with (-1) in fd_list for the page to be released.

The current flow fails rte_malloc in the following flow when working
with --huge-unlink option:
1. alloc_seg() for segment A -
    We allocate segment, unlink the path to the segment
    and keep the file descriptor in fd_list.
2. free_seg() for segment A -
    We clear the segment metadata and return - without closing fd
    or assigning (-1) in fd list.
3. alloc_seg() for segment A again -
    We find segment A as available, try to allocate it,
    find the old fd in fd_list try to unlink it
    as part of alloc_seg() but failed because path doesn't exist.

The impact of such error is falsly failing rte_malloc()
although we have hugepages available.

Fixes: d435aad37da7 ("mem: support --huge-unlink mode")

Provisionally, patch looks fine, but i'll have to have a closer look.

Hi Anatoly,

Do I need to send this patch also to stable or it will happen automatically
if the patch will reach the next release candidate?
Also I wonder if you had more time to review this one?

Not automatically, generally you should add a CC to stable for the patch 
to be considered as part of stable release. That said, usually Fixed: 
tag is also used to determine whether a patch is backport-able, so 
having a correctly identified Fixed: tag is a mandatory minimum :)

Not yet, but i'll try to make some time this week.
