Subject: CVE request Qemu: net: mcf_fec: infinite loop while receiving data

   Hello,

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the ColdFire Fast Ethernet Controller emulator 
support is vulnerable to an infinite loop issue. It could occur while 
receiving packets in 'mcf_fec_receive'.

A privileged user/process inside guest could use this issue to crash the Qemu 
process on the host leading to DoS.
