[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] eal/linux: fix return after alarm registration failure

When adding an alarm, if an error happen when registering
the common alarm callback, it is not considered as a major failure.
The alarm is then inserted in the list.
However it was returning an error code after inserting the alarm.

The error code is reset to 0 so the behaviour and the return code
are consistent.
Other return code related lines are cleaned up for easier understanding.

Fixes: af75078fece3 ("first public release")
