[tor-talk] Tor relay denial of service

I found a strange behavior in Tor relays that allow me to make a remote Tor
relay crash or at least have a 100 % CPU usage.
It crashes only if it is possible to send more data than RAM (and swap) can
store in 300 s (5 minutes) to the relay.

I attach a proof of concept.
