Subject: CVE Request: git

Hello MITRE, all,

The git project announced v2.6.1
and included the following text:

	 * Some protocols (like git-remote-ext) can execute arbitrary code
	   found in the URL. The URLs that submodules use may come
	   from arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote
	   repository), and can hurt those who blindly enable recursive
	   fetch. Restrict the allowed protocols to well known and
	   safe ones.

The following commits appear to implement the restrictions:

I do not know if this is exhaustive.

The announcement also mentions some int-based overflows but does not
describe any situations that would allow crossing privilege boundaries.

Please assign CVEs as appropriate.
