With the configuration:

 address-family ipv4 unicast
  neighbor default-originate
  neighbor route-map RM_IN in
route-map RM_IN permit 10
 set as-path prepend 200

The issue is that we try to process NLRIs even if the attribute length is 0.

Later bgp_update() will handle route-maps and a crash occurs because all the
attributes are NULL, including aspath, where we dereference.

According to the RFC 4271:

A value of 0 indicates that neither the Network Layer
         Reachability Information field nor the Path Attribute field is
         present in this UPDATE message.

But with a fuzzed UPDATE message this can be faked. I think it's reasonable
to skip processing NLRIs if both update_len and attribute_len are 0.
