Subject: CVE Request: OpenJDK and lcms2 2.5 release fixes various denial of
	service issues in lcms2


The lcms2 2.4 -> 2.5 version upgrade fixes various crashes that could be used
by attackers to crash (NULL ptr deref) programs using lcms2, like e.g. OpenJDK 7

This was found in the embedded copy within OpenJDK7 first, then merged to lcms2.

lcms2 related issues in there:
 * S8007925: Improve cmsStageAllocLabV2ToV4curves
 * S8007926: Improve cmsPipelineDup
 * S8007927: Improve cmsAllocProfileSequenceDescription
 * S8007929: Improve CurvesAlloc
 * S8009654: Improve stability of cmsnamed

All covered by lcms2 in this commit (I think):

These probably can get just 1 CVE, although I do not know the OpenJDK IcedTea side
of the story. has the research into
more of these stability commits in lcms2 by my colleague Stanislav Brabec.
Not sure if they should get seperate CVEs or not.

Ciao, Marcus
