Fix underflow in apr_strmatch_precompile. - CVE-2009-1955 Fix a denial
of service attack against the apr_xml_* interface using the 'billion
laughs' entity expansion technique. - CVE-2009-1956 Fix off by one
overflow in apr_brigade_vprintf. Note: CVE-2009-1956 is only an issue
on big-endian architectures.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding

has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues."
