Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support is
vulnerable to an out-of-bounds access issue. It could occur while copying
VGA data via bitblt functions cirrus_bitblt_rop_fwd_transp_ and/or
cirrus_bitblt_rop_fwd_.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process
resulting in DoS.
