I see two possibilities to get segfault:
- no checking for result from memory allocation functions
- too big stack
I have no found any broken memory allocation checking, but I found two
big objects on the stack. One is buf[MAXPHYS] in eli_genkey_files() and
another is passbuf[MAXPHYS] in eli_genkey_passphrase(). If we change
these two to malloc(), then we can handle error from malloc(), print
some useful message and prevent segfault.
