Mitigation - a read-only connection can only crash libvirtd in the cases
where the guest is hot-plugging disks without reflecting those changes
to the persistent definition.  So avoiding hotplug, or doing hotplug
where persistent is always modified alongside live definition, will
avoid the out-of-bounds access.

ACK. I can write up the libvirt security notice; we'll eventually need
this backported to all the affected maint branches.  I'll coordinate the
backport effort with you on IRC.
