Hi,

We are doing research on fuzz testing and our fuzzer caught a
Negative-size-param problem in the latest elfutils(v0.174) code base. The
funciton dwfl_getmodules in dwfl_getmodules.c library does not ensure a
non-negative size. Those inputs will cause the Negative-size-param Problem,
Segmentation fault. I have confirmed them with address sanitizer. 

Please use the “ ./eu-readelf $POC -w ” to reproduce the bug. If you have any
questions, please let me know. Thank you.

The ASAN dumps the stack trace as follows:
