Adding autopkgtests for CVEs

Hi -lts,

I recently had some success adding an autopkgtest for a CVE and
thought I might share:


You generate the uuencode input with "uuencode -m -".

Note that I added a "smoke test" for the non-CVE-related
codepaths; if I just tested whether the reproducer was rejected,
this could mask that I broke the regular operation of the package.

Best wishes,
