  Introduce more formal error handling for libmemstat(3):
  - Define a set of libmemstat(3) error constants, which are used by all
    libmemstat(3) methods except for memstat_mtl_alloc(), which allocates
    a memory type list and may return ENOMEM via errno.
  - Define a per-memory_type_list current error value, which is set when a
    call associated with a memory list fails.  This requires wrapping a
    structure around the queue(9) list head data structure, but this change
    is not visible to libmemstat(3) consumers due to using access methods.
  - Add a new accessor method, memstat_mtl_geterror() to retrieve the error
  - Consistently set the error number in a number of failure modes where
    previously some combination of setting errno and printf'ing error
    descriptions was used.  libmemstat(3) will now no longer print to stdio
    under any circumstances.  Returns of NULL/-1 for errors remain the
  This avoids use of stdio, misuse of error numbers, and should make it
  easier to program a libmemstat(3) consumer able to print useful error
  messages.  Currently, no error-to-string function is provided, as I'm
  unsure how to address internationalization concerns.
