This code was introduced in 0.175 and not present in 0.174.
Confirmed by running the reproducer under valgrind.

Yes, this over-reads the buffer because pr_datasz isn't checked.
Fixed as follows:

commit 012018907ca05eb0ab51d424a596ef38fc87cae1
Author: Mark Wielaard <mark@klomp.org>
Date:   Wed Jan 16 11:57:35 2019 +0100

    libebl: Check GNU property note pr_datasz fits inside note description.

    Before printing the data values, make sure pr_datasz doesn't go beyond
    the end of the note description data.
