[PATCH] nscd: Fix use-after-free in addgetnetgrentX [BZ #23520]


addinnetgrX may use the heap-allocated buffer, so free the buffer
in this function.

2018-08-14  Florian Weimer  <fweimer@redhat.com>

	[BZ #23520]
	nscd: Fix use-after-free in addgetnetgrentX and its callers.
	* nscd/netgroupcache.c
	(addgetnetgrentX): Add tofreep parameter.  Do not free
	heap-allocated buffer.
	(addinnetgrX): Free buffer allocated bt addgetnetgrentX.
	(addgetnetgrentX_ignore): New function.
	(addgetnetgrent): Call it.
	(readdgetnetgrent): Likewise.
