Subject: CVE-2017-9374 Qemu: usb: ehci host memory leakage during hotunplug

   Hello,

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the USB EHCI Emulation support is vulnerable 
to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while hot-unplugging the device, as 
it does not release the memory allocated at initialisation.

A guest user/process could use this issue to leak host memory, resulting in 
DoS for host.

Upstream patch:
---------------
   -> http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=commit;h=d710e1e7bd3d5bfc26b631f02ae87901ebe646b0

Reference:

This issue was reported by Li Qiang of Qihoo 360 Gear Team.

Thank you.
