If an error occurred when allocating memory for metrics or names,
the function returned without freeing allocated memory. This is now
fixed to avoid the resource leak in the case that either metrics or
names had been successfully allocated memory.

Coverity issue: 362053
Fixes: c5b7197f662e ("telemetry: move some functions to metrics library")

This is fixed in https://patches.dpdk.org/patch/75323/. Can you please check if that suffices?

I left some comments on that patch, but seeing as it is fixing the same issue, I will remove this patch.

Thanks,

Gaurav reported the same issue and proposed a patch, but I went with
yours as it describes the issue, is minimal and has the proper tags
for backport.
