    remote: protect against integer overflow
    Integer overflow and remote code are never a nice mix.
    This has existed since commit 56cd414.
    * src/libvirt.c (virDomainGetVcpus): Reject overflow up front.
    * src/remote/remote_driver.c (remoteDomainGetVcpus): Avoid overflow
    on sending rpc.
    * daemon/remote.c (remoteDispatchDomainGetVcpus): Avoid overflow on
    receiving rpc.

F14 and F15 can instead use this backport, to avoid having to update gnulib:

Rawhide will pick up the fix by rebasing to 0.9.3.
