network plugin: Fix heap overflow in parse_packet().
Emilien Gaspar has identified a heap overflow in parse_packet(), the function used by the network plugin to parse incoming network packets. This is a vulnerability in collectd, though the scope is not clear at this point. At the very least specially crafted network packets can be used to crash the daemon. We can't rule out a potential remote code execution though. Fixes: CVE-2016-6254
