Subject: [PATCH] evutil_parse_sockaddr_port(): fix buffer overflow

@asn-the-goblin-slayer:
  "Length between '[' and ']' is cast to signed 32 bit integer on line 1815. Is
   the length is more than 2<<31 (INT_MAX), len will hold a negative value.
   Consequently, it will pass the check at line 1816. Segfault happens at line
   1819.

   Generate a resolv.conf with generate-resolv.conf, then compile and run
   poc.c. See entry-functions.txt for functions in tor that might be
   vulnerable.

   Please credit 'Guido Vranken' for this discovery through the Tor bug bounty
   program."

  (gdb) (gdb) (gdb) (gdb)
  Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
