As stated in the manual, pthread_attr_init return value should be
checked.
Besides, a pthread_attr_t should be destroyed once unused.

In practice, we may have no leak (from what I read in glibc current code),
but this may change in the future.
Stick to a correct use of the API.

Fixes: 5cf3fd3af4df ("vdpa/mlx5: add CPU core parameter to bind polling thread")

I reviewed the patch but was waiting for Nvidia to test it.

Nvidia, could it be done ASAP so that it goes to -rc3?

Thanks,
