ROSE: prevent heap corruption with bad facilities

When parsing the FAC_NATIONAL_DIGIS facilities field, it's possible for
a remote host to provide more digipeaters than expected, resulting in
heap corruption.  Check against ROSE_MAX_DIGIS to prevent overflows, and
abort facilities parsing on failure.

Additionally, when parsing the FAC_CCITT_DEST_NSAP and
FAC_CCITT_SRC_NSAP facilities fields, a remote host can provide a length
of less than 10, resulting in an underflow in a memcpy size, causing a
kernel panic due to massive heap corruption.  A length of greater than
20 results in a stack overflow of the callsign array.  Abort facilities
parsing on these invalid length values.
