File CVE-2016-7909-qemut-net-pcnet-infinite-loop-in-pcnet_rdra_addr.patch of Package xen

References: bsc#1003032 CVE-2016-7909

The AMD PC-Net II emulator has set of control and status(CSR)
registers. Of these, CSR76 and CSR78 hold receive and transmit
descriptor ring length respectively. This ring length could range
from 1 to 65535. Setting ring length to zero leads to an infinite
loop in pcnet_rdra_addr. Add check to avoid it.
