Use CVE-2014-5044.

It seems fairly clear that there is only one CVE ID needed. However,
can you clarify what definition of "CVE-2002-0391-style integer
overflows" you were using? We think you might mean:

  - any integer overflow caused by multiplying the number of elements
    in an array by the size of a single element

  - this includes, but isn't limited to, cases where the array
    elements represent arguments
