>> Ne2000 NIC uses ring buffer of NE2000_MEM_SIZE(49152) bytes to process 
>> network packets. Registers PSTART & PSTOP define ring buffer size & 
>> location. Setting these registers to invalid values could lead to 
>> infinite loop or OOB r/w access issues. Add check to avoid it.

Use CVE-2016-2841.
