Use CVE-2014-9911 for the ICU vulnerability, and use CVE-2014-9912 for
the PHP vulnerability. Admittedly, the code changes in ICU and PHP had
the same motivation. However, the code is not shared between
ures_getByKeyWithFallback in ICU and get_icu_disp_value_src_php in
PHP. Thus, two CVE IDs exist. This is also consistent with similar
ICU/PHP situations in the
