Library functions should not cause the app to exit or panic. Replace the
existing panic call in the EAL remote launch functions with an error
code return instead.

LGTM with an update of the release notes (that I will add when merging
if there is no futher comment/objection).

There are probably other places to cleanup wrt rte_panic in EAL, but
this first cleanup is good and the rest can come later.

Added a note in the RN and applied.
Thanks Bruce.
