This backports a fix for the low priority CVE-2021-28831:
  decompress_gunzip.c in BusyBox through 1.32.1 mishandles the error bit
  on the huft_build result pointer, with a resultant invalid free or
  segmentation fault, via malformed gzip data.

+Subject: decompress_gunzip: Fix DoS if gzip is corrupt
+
+On certain corrupt gzip files, huft_build will set the error bit on
+the result pointer. If afterwards abort_unzip is called huft_free
+might run into a segmentation fault or an invalid pointer to
+free(p).
+
+In order to mitigate this, we check in huft_free if the error bit
+is set and clear it before the linked list is freed.
