Subject: elfutils: memory allocation failure in allocate_elf (common.h)

If it is suitable for a CVE please assign one. Thanks.

Description:
elfutils is a set of libraries/utilities to handle ELF objects (drop in 
replacement for libelf).

During the fuzz of libdwarf, I noticed a memory allocation failure which 
involves elfutils.
Actually there is a proposed patch on the elfutils mailing list, but nobody 
commented.

The complete ASan output:

# dwarfdump $FILE
==21982==ERROR: AddressSanitizer failed to allocate 0x3401fb3000 
(223371538432) bytes of LargeMmapAllocator (error code: 12)
