QA reproducer:

Using the PoC file from the upstream bug
https://github.com/libimobiledevice/libplist/files/712856/poc.txt I was able
to reproduce the issue on openSUSE Leap 42.2 like this:

  plistutil -i poc.txt

The program will consume an increasing amount of memory and CPU cycles. It
will not terminate.
