Plug memory leaks from kvm_nlist(3) using kvm_nlist2(3)

A user reported net-snmp is leaking memory.  I found the root cause is kvm(3) itself.  Please see the following review request:

https://reviews.freebsd.org/D29019

The attached patch should work around the problem until we fix the root cause on all supported versions.

I found another memory leak in libkvm but it is hard to work around from ports.  I am going to deal with the problem from src level.

Unfortunately, it will take some time to trickle down to releng/*. :-(
