DWARF reader: Reject sections with invalid sizes

This is another fuzzer bug, gdb/23567.  This time, the fuzzer has
specifically altered the size of .debug_str:

$ eu-readelf -S objdump
Section Headers:
[Nr] Name                 Type         Addr             Off      Size     ES Flags Lk Inf Al
[31] .debug_str           PROGBITS     0000000000000000 0057116d ffffffffffffffff  1 MS     0   0  1

When this file is loaded into GDB, the DWARF reader crashes attempting
to access the string table (or it may just store a bunch of nonsense):

[gdb-8.3-6-fc30]
$ gdb -nx -q objdump
BFD: warning: /path/to/objdump has a corrupt section with a size (ffffffffffffffff) larger than the file size

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Nick has already committed a BFD patch to issue the warning seen above.

/* and more gibberish  */

Consider read_indirect_string_at_offset_from:

static const char *
read_indirect_string_at_offset_from (struct objfile *objfile,
                                     bfd *abfd, LONGEST str_offset,
                                     struct dwarf2_section_info *sect,
                                     const char *form_name,
                                     const char *sect_name)
{
  dwarf2_read_section (objfile, sect);
  if (sect->buffer == NULL)
    error (_("%s used without %s section [in module %s]"),
           form_name, sect_name, bfd_get_filename (abfd));
  if (str_offset >= sect->size)
    error (_("%s pointing outside of %s section [in module %s]"),
           form_name, sect_name, bfd_get_filename (abfd));
  gdb_assert (HOST_CHAR_BIT == 8);
  if (sect->buffer[str_offset] == '\0')
    return NULL;
  return (const char *) (sect->buffer + str_offset);
}

With sect_size being ginormous, the code attempts to access
sect->buffer[GINORMOUS], and depending on the layout of memory,
GDB either stores a bunch of gibberish strings or crashes.

This is an attempt to mitigate this by implementing a similar approach
used by BFD. In our case, we simply reject the section with the invalid
length:

$ ./gdb -nx -q objdump
BFD: warning: /path/to/objdump has a corrupt section with a size (ffffffffffffffff) larger than the file size
Reading symbols from /path/to/objdump...

warning: Discarding section .debug_str which has a section size (ffffffffffffffff) larger than the file size [in module /path/to/objdump]
DW_FORM_strp used without .debug_str section [in module /path/to/objdump]
(No debugging symbols found in /path/to/objdump)
(gdb)

Unfortunately, I have not found a way to regression test this, since it
requires poking ELF section headers.
