commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=8e7af5788a4b1a5f0bf478799f3ecbfddec3cc5b
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/2018.02.x

Fixes the following security issues:

CVE-2018-16062: dwarf_getaranges in dwarf_getaranges.c in libdw in elfutils
before 2018-08-18 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(heap-based buffer over-read) via a crafted file.

CVE-2018-16402: libelf/elf_end.c in elfutils 0.173 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (double free and application crash) or possibly
have unspecified other impact because it tries to decompress twice.

CVE-2018-16403: libdw in elfutils 0.173 checks the end of the attributes
list incorrectly in dwarf_getabbrev in dwarf_getabbrev.c and dwarf_hasattr
in dwarf_hasattr.c, leading to a heap-based buffer over-read and an
application crash.

For more details, see the announcement:
https://sourceware.org/ml/elfutils-devel/2018-q3/msg00116.html

0.172 and 0.173 also included fixes for crashes and hangs found by afl-fuzz
(no CVEs assigned):
