Subject: CVE-2017-7377 Qemu: 9pfs: host memory leakage via v9fs_create

   Hello,

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the virtio-9p back-end support is vulnerable 
to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while doing a I/O operation via 
v9fs_create/v9fs_lcreate routine.

A privileged user/process inside guest could use this flaw to leak host memory 
resulting in Dos.
