Subject: CVE request Qemu: usb: hcd-ehci: memory leak in ehci_process_itd

   Hello,

Qemu emulator(Qemu) built with the USB EHCI emulation support is vulnerable to 
a memory leakage flaw. It could occur while processing isochronous transfer 
descriptors(iTD), with buffer page select(PG) index that falls beyond buffer 
page array area.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to leak Qemu memory bytes 
leading to a DoS on the host.

This issue was reported by Li Qiang of 360.cn Inc.

Thank you.
