Subject: CVE request Qemu: OOB access in address_space_rw leads to segmentation
 fault

   Hello,

Qemu emulator built to use 'address_space_translate' to map an address to a 
MemoryRegionSection is vulnerable to an OOB r/w access issue. It could occur 
while doing pci_dma_read/write calls. Affects Qemu versions >= 1.6.0 and <= 
2.3.1.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the guest instance 
resulting in DoS.
