[QEMU] ne2000: Stop memory access beyond buffer

As a program that runs in dom0 which serves users from guests,
the qemu drivers need to be vigilant to the input that comes
from the guests since they may be malicious.

As it is there are multiple ways to get ne2000 to read/write
memory beyond the 48K buffer that it has allocated for each

This patch checks the addresses and prevents this from occuring.

The boundary is checked each time since it's changed for every
packet received while the other parameters are only changed
(by the guest) during setup.
