extcap: Fix misc memory leaks triggered by network interface changes
Valgrind reports plenty of misc memory leaks in extcap after the network interface list has changed or is refreshed. Errors can be seen by starting Wireshark with Valgrind's memcheck tool and bringing a network interface up and down a few times with: ifconfig eth0 up ifconfig eth0 down Change-Id: I90f53847071854b7d02facb39b7a380732de79b4 Reviewed-on: https://code.wireshark.org/review/17606 Petri-Dish: Peter Wu <peter@lekensteyn.nl> Tested-by: Petri Dish Buildbot <buildbot-no-reply@wireshark.org> Reviewed-by: Peter Wu <peter@lekensteyn.nl>
