    src/utils_cmd_listval.c: Free memory returned by `uc_get_names'.
    We've run into a memory leak in collectd, triggered by usage of 'listval'
    via the unixsock plugin.
    When making a 'listval' call, utils_cmd_listval.c:handle_listval() calls
    utils_cache.c:uc_get_names() to retrieve a list of active value names from the
    internal cache. uc_get_names() uses realloc() to allocate memory in which to
    store the list, and returns pointers.
    handle_listval() does not perform a free() on the returned memory. Each time
    listval is called, some memory is leaked. handle_getval() does not suffer from
    the same problem - a free() is called in that case.
