Proposed actualized upstream qemu patch to resolve the Cirrus LGD-54XX "bitblt" heap overflow (CVE-2007-1320)

Jan Niehusmann discovered that the upstream fix for the CVE-2007-1320 is
incomplete and still allows local users to cause a heap-based buffer overlow,
when connecting via the VNC console.

Steps to reproduce:

No reproducer.
