Subject: CVE request Qemu: serial: host memory leakage in 16550A UART
 emulation

   Hello,

device unplug operation; Doing so repeatedly would result in leaking host 
memory, affecting other services on the host.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to cause a DoS and/or 
potentially crash the Qemu process on the host.
