View File CVE-2016-8669-qemut-char-divide-by-zero-error-in-serial_update_parameters.patch of Package xen (Project home:charlesa:Factory)

References: bsc#1005005 CVE-2016-8669

16550A UART device uses an oscillator to generate frequencies
(baud base), which decide communication speed. This speed could
be changed by dividing it by a divider. If the divider is
greater than the baud base, speed is set to zero, leading to a
divide by zero error. Add check to avoid it.
