Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan 9
File System(9pfs) support, is vulnerable to memory leakage issue. It could
occur while creating extended attribute via 'Txattrcreate' message.
A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to leak host memory,
thus affecting other services on the host and/or potentially crash the Qemu
process on the host.
