This CVE only affects Zesty and limited to powerpc.

Bionic is marked as needed on our CVE tracker because we are tracking the
master branch now, it's already in master-next branch.

Patch compiled and tested with the reproducer in the commit message.
And it works as expected.

A side note is that this patch will collide with a later commit 2a3d6553,
and merged together with it in commit 072df813.
I didn't pickup those aformentioned patches but just focus on this CVE itself.
We can fix that later if we need to.
