POC1

Hi, 

A Heap-buffer-overflow problem was discovered in the function
print_debug_line_section in readelf.c, as distributed in ELFutils 0.175. A
crafted ELF input can cause segment faults and I have confirmed them with
address sanitizer too.

Here are the POC files. Please use "./eu-readelf -w $POC" to reproduce the
error.
