Subject: CVE Request: libX11: buffer overflow in  MakeBigReq macro

Hello,

The MakeBigReq macro in libX11 contained a 4-byte buffer overflow:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=56508

Fixed by the following commit in libX11 1.5.99.901:

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11/commit/?id=39547d600a13713e15429f49768e54c3173c828d

Could a CVE please be assigned to this issue? (needs a CVE-2013)

Thanks,

Marc.
