Based on the
https://github.com/vincentbernat/lldpd/commit/8738a36d30e2e94257c5b1ae9cd3e7c3d314808e
commit, there are apparently some platforms, such as the OpenWrt Linux
distribution, on which hardening must be disabled. Thus, this is a
relevant exploitable problem in the general case.

Use CVE-2015-8011.

Use CVE-2015-8012.

(Apparently there are various types of malformed packets that can
cause different problems. However, the code changes themselves are all
for CWE-617.)
